“These young writers nowadays. They spend more time networking to promote their writing careers than writing their books. Maybe that’s why there are so few good ones anymore.”
Lauren Carr, It's Murder, My Son

“In a chair in the far corner of the room, Uncle Eugene watched all the comings and goings. A first aid training dummy, Uncle Eugene had been stabbed in the back, tossed off rooftops, and strangled on numerous occasions, all in the name of research. When he wasn’t being victimized, he sat in an overstuffed chair in the corner, dressed in a tuxedo with a top hat perched on his head. With one leg crossed over the other and an empty sherry glass next to his elbow, Uncle Eugene looked like he was taking a break while waiting for the next attempt on his life.”
Lauren Carr, It's Murder, My Son
