The thing that was most disconcerting for me was the dramatic increase in lewd sexual descriptions:Jacky's daily strip tease acts for the crew, continuous allusions to Sammy Nettles sexual behavior with the captain, then Jacky's encounter with him and finally her "solution" with Clarissa in order to divert suspicion. There was far more sexual content in this book. One began to feel like Jacky herself had become burlesque. In the previous stories, I felt like she liked to flirt but the nature of the exploits on the Bloodhound was lacking in good taste.
I see that book 5 is already out. I hope that Mr. Meyer reverts back to his original formula of witty narrative and fast paced action because Jacky truly is a fabulous little heroine.
