Gillian Flynn
“Yes, I am finally a match for Amy. The other morning I woke up next to her, and I studied the back of her skull. I tried to read her thoughts. For once I didn't feel like I was staring into the sun. I'm rising to my wife's level of madness. Because I can feel her changing me again: I was a callow boy, and then a man, good and bad. Now at last I'm the hero. I am the one to root for in the never-ending war story of our marriage. It's a story I can live with. Hell, at this point, I can't imagine my story without Amy. She is my forever antagonist.

We are one long frightening climax.”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

Terry Hayes
“nobody’s ever been arrested for a murder; they have only ever been arrested for not planning it properly.”
Terry Hayes, I Am Pilgrim
