I haven't read Setterfield's book yet--it's in the pile--but I did read The Interpretation of Murder (my review: http://dhamel.typepad.com/book_blog/2006/09/rubenfeld_jed_t.html). It wasn't terrible, but it was no more impressive than a lot of other books out there. I don't know why the publisher thought that *this* one stood out.

Holy censorship, Batman. What is this world coming to? Last time I looked, this was the U.S.A. and the 1st Amendment to the Constitution guarantees freedom of speech. While they're at it, they may as well take the Constitution off the shelves. No one uses it any more anyway.
