Strike is struggling in his personal life as he he can no longer operate under the radar due to his newfound fame.

His relationship with Robin is also not what it used to be and she is now invaluable to him in the business, but their personal relationship is much more complicated than that.

What have the actors said about Strike: Lethal White?

Tom Burke, 39, who plays Strike, commented: "Lethal White is the fourth book. It picks up pretty much where Career Of Evil left off, some months on. It’s an interesting point in their [Strike and Robin’s] relationship.

 

"The relationship, Robin and Strike’s, seems to me to be the heart of the show."

Co-star Holliday Grainger, 32, who stars as Robin, agreed: "I think we’re all just rooting for her and Strike, aren’t we? She and Matthew [Robin’s now-husband] have to end. And maybe that’s because she’s growing into the person she’s meant to become, doing the work she was meant to."
