As with all the novels I have read by Saxon Andrew, the level of grammar, spelling and punctuation is poor. The later novels have improved in this regard, but there are still glaring errors and poor sentence structure. Admittedly it is less distracting than in the earlier books. This really is a shame as the storyline is complex and satisfying and one can identify with the characters. I don't understand how someone with Saxon Andrew's qualifications can be so careless with the basics of the English language!
