“I decided to irritate him, on the premise that it couldn't make my situation any worse.”
Jeff Somers, The Terminal State

“I forced myself to stay put and keep looking-impatient assholes would take the leap, letting adrenaline and desperation guide them, but I was fucking ancient and I knew better. It was bitter, but I fucking knew better about just about everything.”

“I didn't want to kill her; she was just doing her job. But she was standing between me and the rest of my miserable life, so she was going to have to take a bullet.”
Jeff Somers, The Electric Church
