    The person who says that there was no foul language obviously hasn't read the book properly, I can see why someone wouldn't like the book for the bad language but it was very gripping, I read 200 pages in about an hour and a half... An easy, enjoyable read.

    I have no idea what so ever this guy below is going on about with the bad language there isn't one swear word I've come across in the whole book! It's a well written book definitely worth a read I enjoyed it.

    For me, this book was spoiled by the gratuitous use of foul language and my enjoyment of the book was, unfortunately, cut short (after about 50 pages) by my desire to spare myself further distress. I'm fully aware, of course, that this many people use these offensive words as conversational fillers or as a substitute for wit, and I hear them every day, but this is supposed to be entertainment and I'd really like to wipe off this kind of language on the doormat when I come home to my family. That said, I was enjoying this otherwise well-written book until the point when enough became enough, and I really wish I could have an abridged version which I could follow to the conclusion of the case. It's not just Leigh Russell to whom this review could apply, of course, it's most modern authors. Dear publishers, could you not give some kind of advance warning, even something as anodyne as, "This novel contains language which some people may find offensive"? Then I would know not to waste my time beginning to read something I will never finish.
