Copy/line editor needed for a dark comedy fiction novel

Hello and thank you for looking at this project. I have just finished the 8th draft of my novel and am looking for an editor to correct/improve (if necessary) the book's:

- spelling,

- punctuation,

- syntax,

- basic facts,

- story and sentence flow,

- plot holes,

- and more content related issues.

The story is a black comedy so I would like someone who is fairly open minded and won't get offended by dark humour. I'd preferably like someone from the UK due to the number of topical references and I also need spell checking to be in UK English.

To prove that you're not just blind proposing could you please use the word "Pineapple" in your proposal. Many thanks
