There are some rough areas with dialogue and character development (the 'bad' guys are ALL bad, Snidely Whiplash meanie-pants, the good characters are pure in heart etc). It doesn't stand in the way of an enjoyable read and I didn't feel like the rough areas prevented me from enjoying the story.
For a fairly tame/clean mystery, there was a great deal of sexual violence and misogynistic violence as well as overt racism, which was unpleasant to read about (but certainly in period for the time/place setting).
Enjoyable undemanding read.
Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher.
