Ed Lynskey
“I cadged a complimentary green matchbook with a gold bird icon from the Bell canning jar. Later we'd use the matches to light our spliffs. My fingertips tapped the stem to the gizmo that dinged a bell. Nobody came out. Wrong signal, so I did two bell rings. No response prompted me to tap out a series of bell rings.”
Ed Lynskey, Lake Charles

J.D. Robb
“Roarke: You'd enjoy flying more if you'd learn the controls.

Eve: I'd rather pretend I'm on the ground.

Roarke: And how many vehicles have you wrecked, had blown up, or destroyed in the last, oh, two years?

Eve: Think about that, then imagine it happening when I'm at the wheel at thirty thousand feet.

Roarke: Good point. I'll do the flying.”
J.D. Robb, Kindred in Death
