At the end of Lethal White and throughout Troubled Blood, Robin is renting a room from her live-in landlord, Max Priestwood, on Finborough Road, Earl’s Court in London. The flat is on the top two floors of a terraced house. Robin often spends time in the common area of the fourth floor with Max and his dog, Wolfgang. “A small terraced area lay off the sitting room, where the elderly, rough-coated dachshund liked to lie outside on sunny days.”
In Troubled Blood, Strike is invited over to talk to Max about his experience in the military. That night, Robin’s brother Jonathan and his two friends are there. Strike arrives a little later, very drunk after being in the pub with Nick for hours. It does not end well.
