One of Griffin's strengths is character development. Where that was present in this book, it was cut and pasted from previous volumes.
Second, the language was over the top - or more accurately- in the sewer. It was so difficult to listen to, I had to turn it off a few times just to take a break. (Some is expected, but this? Come on.) Much of the foul language had nothing to do with the story. It was petty and not in keeping with the consistency of the other books in the series.
It was no longer fun: it became a chore. I don't read fiction for the intellectual challenge, but if I need chores, I'll check the honey-do list.
The Castillo series should continue, but I would encourage that Griffin returns to his original principles and style.
I hope the next one isn't as flat. It's unlikely that I'll invest in another book by this author.
