    A good solid detective/mystery. Recommended for those cold and rainy days curled up in a big comfy chair or chaise lounge. Good reading.

    An adult that doesn't like cussing.

    I am an adult (not a 5 yr old) and I don't appreciate books with foul language and/or overt sex. I am glad when a reviewer lets me know if those things are included in the book so that I can make a knowledgable decision.

    No! Not true!

    I am on page eighty five, and so far it is an excellent book. Quit the whining over the "inappropriate language". Please, we are not in first grade! Dont be so quick to condemn the book.

    I haven't even read it yet, but because of all the customer complaints about bad language - "oh my" - I can't wait to read it. If it is a good book, what difference does it make if "offensive" language is used to emphasize subject matter. Get over it and read the story.

    I couldn't finish reading it.

    I made it about a third of the way through the book before my desire faded to zero. There are too many other decent books to read and i couldn't see wasting my time on this one. Talk about a story line that goes nowhere very slowely. The characters aren't interesting in the least. You don't feel any type of connection to any of them. The story goes off on long tedious tangents, i couldnt remember what the story was about. Avoid this one... its free but i still felt like i had been taken.

    Too Much Foul Language

    This book should have come with a warning label! I don't mind an F-bomb once in a while, but 2 or 3 per chapter is too much. I only read 3 chapters and had had enough. So really, I don't know if the story was good at all. I've actually deleted it off my nook. Hope this helps someone else who doesn't like bad language.

    Okay book

    The book was an okay book. I mean theres gotta be a reason why they made it free. There is some strong language but if you are mature i think you can handle it.

    A promising start for a series. Clare is quirky enough to be interesting. As an American I especially enjoy reading novels set in other countries-- I pick up a little education while I am reading just for fun. I don't know why this book drew so many complaints about language-- it did not seem unusually excessive to me. Just because I don't speak that way doesn't mean I'm upset to read it.

    I didn't finish the book. The story was not engaging enough to overlook the language and the sexual comments.

    This was a rather unusual premise, but kept me involved all the way through. I would recommend.

    Nicely done - but hard to follow

    Maybe it's just me, but I found her style made it difficult to keep track of the characters. Each chapter was devoted to a different character and each character was referred to by first name. But in the text, the character was sometimes referred to by last name. So it took me a while to remember that Matthew was Dr. Easton, for example.
    I also didn't see what was so special about Claire. She clearly failed to find the killer or point the police to the killer. Her only contribution was figuring out who the killer was at the very end. So I would have busted her back to patrol had I been her superior.

    I admit I haven't read this book yet but it's free so what do you have to lose? I don't understand how people can expect the Free Friday choices to appeal to everyone. Open your mind readers, these free books are an opportunity to try new authors at no cost to you. I have found some wonderful books I would never have bought, along with some I didn't care for. Don't like it? Delete it. Don't be stuck in a rut, try something new!

    Good read....

    It was actually a little slow and did not make the hair stand up on the back of my neck but it was well written and I did enjoy. Recommend but don't look for a super thriller in this one.

    A good detective story.

    What is takes to be a woman police officer and be undercover right out of the academy. Well written, with sparks of humor that work.
