A bit spoilerish comments follow. OK. I am NOT a prude. I do not have a problem reading stories which include very descriptive sex. I also do not have a problem with "foul" language. I must admit I use some it myself. However, when I read a book, any book, the story has to really grab my attention. All I can say about this book is that I'm happy it was free. Otherwise, I'd be looking for a refund. The main character in this story, Joy Humbold, comes across as a whiny, drunk, who has no problem having sex on a first date with no mention of any kind of protection. It seems she goes for both sexes, which is fine with me, however, she goes about it in a very crass manner. Oh, I forgot. She also seems to enjoy a bit of S&M. The story here is very convoluted, with too many characters, too many dead bodies, and not enough explanation as to what is going on. The most interesting character in the story is her dog Blue. I read as much as I did because of him. I didn't care for anybody...
Ok, this is the 2nd book by this author & in this series that I've read (well I did not get all the way thru this particular one). I like mysteries and I like dogs - so this seems like a series for me. I had read one of the Sydney Rye books from later in the series and was, at best, lukewarm about it. I thought maybe if I started with #1 I would get some backstory that would make the series more interesting. Too bad I was wrong. I didn't care for the main character at the series midpoint and I really, really found her repellant in this opening book. I hardly know where to start. First, altho' the series implies that the dog is a main character, that is NOT to case - the poor dog is a bit player at best and it's not at all clear why she even has a dog in the series - he has no role. Even more irritating is the main character's utter lack of responsibility as a dog owner - what rationale dog owner would (a) buy a very large dog to live in a NYC apartment, and (b) never...
OK, I'm no prude. A little rough language never kept me from enjoying a good book. But this puppy isn't even paper trained. The language is gratuitously vulgar and the crime gratuitously gross. I didn't finish the book because it just wasn't worth the slog through the dreck to get to the end. I have plenty of books on my iPad. I don't have to stick with any book that doesn't capture my interest in the first four or five chapters. This one didn't.
