A book of this length would typically take me three or four days but I had trouble putting it down, especially in the last 100 pages. The one disappointing thing for me was the smattering of profanity. I have read every book in The Patrick Bowers Files series and enjoyed them immensely. Even in the most difficult scenes as Patrick Bowers and his fellow law enforcement officers dealt with extremely evil criminals, the author kept to the high road with the language. In this one, he veered slightly off that road occasionally and it detracted from the story rather than adding to it, in my opinion. Every other aspect of the book was well-done. I think several of the characters really nailed it with their response to a woman who was trying to insist on politically correct terminology. In short, they said that things need to be called what they are rather than tiptoeing around to try to avoid offending anyone. Yet, they were not suggesting that we should go out of our way to offend. There are a significant number of people in high places who need to get that message. I enjoyed the book overall with the one exception mentioned.
