The Harry Potter author announced her latest Cormoran Strike book on Twitter

British author JK Rowling announced the release date of “Lethal White” - the fourth installment of Cormoran Strike novels, in a tweet on Tuesday. She writes the series under her pseudonym Robert Galbraith.

“Lethal White” will be released on September 18, following “A Cuckoo’s Calling,” “The Silkworm,” and “Career of Evil.”

The author also revealed the cover design in the same tweet.

Like the previous three books, the upcoming book will follow the private investigators Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott. The duo will investigate a crime witnessed by a "troubled young man", named Billy.  

The three previous Galbraith books, “The Cuckoo's Calling,” “The Silkworm”, and “Career of Evil” have sold 1.2 million print copies for £7.5m according to Nielsen BookScan.

The BBC has adapted the best-selling series for television, starring British actor Tom Burke as Strike and Holliday Grainger as Ellacott.

“Lethal White” is available for pre-order.
