Review Quotes



Addictive, murderous fun.
--Vox

At times you might feel as you did when reading the Harry Potter books, particularly later in the series, when they got longer and looser. You love the plot, and you love being in the company of the characters, and you admire the author's voice and insights and ingenuity, and you relish the chance to relax into a book without feeling rushed or puzzled or shortchanged.... Long live the fertile imagination and prodigious output of J.K. Rowling.--The New York Times

Compulsively readable.--People

Even if the world is the seedy underbelly of contemporary London and not Magical Hogwarts, cracking the cover of a Galbraith novel is like stepping through a portal. You're immersed all at once.--Bustle

If you love the intricate, character-driven mysteries written by Tana French and Kate Atkinson, then chances are good that you'll enjoy the ones by Robert Galbraith. . . . Robert Galbraith knows how to tell a story every bit as deftly as does J.K. Rowling. Cormoran Strike, who lost a leg in Afghanistan, may limp painfully through much of the book, but the tale being told never misses a step.--Joyce Sáenz Harris, Dallas Morning News

One of contemporary crime fiction's most delightful partnerships.--Seattle Times

Rowling deftly circumnavigates all of the tropes and constructs that have long since relegated the male-author-dominated thriller genre to a place of ridicule and sheer inanity.
--Tablet Magazine

Rowling's emotionally intelligent portrayal of her protagonists never overwhelms the whodunit story line.--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

Rowling's wizardry as a writer is on fulsome display in Lethal White ( 3.5/4 stars), a behemoth of a novel that flies by in a flash. This is a crime series deeply rooted in the real world, where brutality and ugliness are leavened by the oh-so-human flaws and virtues of Galbraith's irresistible hero and heroine.--USA Today

"A scrupulous plotter and master of misdirection, Galbraith keeps the pages turning."--Guardian

"Troubled Blood's" central mystery is a strong one, and watching it unfold over the course of a protracted investigation is one of the novel's great pleasures...Rowling's greatest novelistic gifts are her ability to spin wild, intricate plots (witness the astrological elements of this latest book), and to create colorful, highly individual characters who come instantly alive on the page."--Bill Sheehan, Washington Post

A Wall Street Journal Best Book of 2020
