J.K. Rowling Releasing New Detective Book Under Robert Galbraith Pseudonym

There's no denying the successes of J.K. Rowling, and the author has gone on to write a number of other books following on from her magical Harry Potter days.

Under Robert Galbraith pseudonym, J.K. has a plenty of other different books, and another one has just had its release date revealed. Fans of the author should make a date in their diaries!


As well as the whole Harry Potter saga, the 52-year-old created a series of equally as gripping novels for a more grown-up audience, titled the Cormoran Strike series.

She didn't stop there either, as J.K. authored the books under a totally different name so that she could start writing again post-Harry Potter on a neutral basis, free of any expectations.

This new book is part of the detective series and is the fourth in the collection, titled Lethal White. She released the first instalment of the book, The Cuckoo's Calling, in 2013 and it was well received with critical acclaim.

Then there was The Silkworm in 2014 and Career of Evil in 2015, which were all adapted for a BBC One series.

The new book is pretty much ready to be published, and we now know that it will be released on 18th September.


We have already seen the front cover artwork too in one of the author's most recent tweets, and it is just as moody and enticing as the three that have come before it.

The book is currently available on pre-order online at Waterstones for a tenner, with the synopsis revealing that the story will follow the tale of Billy, a 'troubled young man' seeking help from the Cormoran Strike's office to help investigate a crime he thinks he witnessed as a kid.

Billy and Cormoran then 'set off on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive inner sanctum within Parliament, and to a beautiful but sinister manor house deep in the countryside', reads the book's blurb.

We can't wait to be buried deep in this book's storyline.
