Crime novels are like comfort food—you don't always want the same thing, sometimes you want the trustiest box of Kraft mac'n'cheese and sometimes something a little more exotic, but you always want to more or less know what you're getting. And you don't want to be too surprised; maybe you don't solve the case but you want to feel like you *could* solve it, like the clues are there for you and not pulled out of nowhere from something we have no access to as readers. At the same time, you don't want them to be tired, the freezer-burned chicken fingers only a picky child would want. If crime novels are comfort food, Lethal White is a feast. Maybe the kind of feast that you need to save half for leftovers, because it's really damn long, but complex and thrilling, intertwining crime and politics family drama and Cormoran's and Robin's personal lives (including Matthew, who continues to be The Worst). It is a dense and bulky book, but while there's a bit of filler and it gets a bit over-monologued at times, for the most part it's a satisfying meal.
