Having just finished a couple of very pleasant adventure stories with likeable protagonists, I almost physically recoiled at the main character’s attitude in the first few pages. It’s an adjustment. It’s also about a murder, so maybe I shouldn’t have been surprised. Pretty much all of the male characters came across as arrogant chauvinists, including (especially) the good guys, so the book was a bit much to take. I enjoyed it, but I can’t say I liked it.
