Considering how little (in English, at least) profanity there is -- probably because the author has trouble making it sound anything but painfully forced -- I was surprised by the rampant misogyny (see: "loose" women, and crimes of a specific nature committed against women) throughout, and more and more strongly suspected the writer was EITHER (1) a very old man quite out of touch with the world, maybe because he has worked as a college researcher or professor (definitely NOT of any subject that would involve writing, of course) his entire life, OR (2) a woman (named Jane Roberts, perhaps?) trying too hard to write like a man.
I looked Janes up while writing this review, and it seems my first guess was correct.
I never leave a book unfinished, but I regret having picked up and wasted time reading this awful novel.
