These earlier ones are just not quite as good. Still, I didn't put it down. So full of silliness and screw-ups, but maybe the author was still getting his characters worked out.

The tone of this one is very different from the other Elvis Cole books I've read - less playful, more despondent and personal. Good stuff.

Richard K. Morgan
“The way I see it, anyone who's proud of their country is either a thug or just hasn't read enough history yet.”
Richard K. Morgan, Thirteen

Raymond Chandler
“When I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split.”
Raymond Chandler

Raymond Chandler
“Until you guys own your own souls you don't own mine. Until you guys can be trusted every time and always, in all times and conditions, to seek the truth out and find it and let the chips fall where they may—until that time comes, I have the right to listen to my conscience, and protect my client the best way I can. Until I'm sure you won't do him more harm than you'll do the truth good. Or until I'm hauled before somebody that can make me talk.”
Raymond Chandler, The High Window

Michael J. Sullivan
“Hadrian shook his head and sighed. “Why do you have to make everything so difficult? They’re probably not bad people—just poor. You know, taking what they need to buy a loaf of bread to feed their family. Can you begrudge them that? Winter is coming and times are hard.” He nodded his head in the direction of the thieves. “Right?”
“I ain’t got no family,” flat-nose replied. “I spend most of my coin on drink.”
“You’re not helping,” Hadrian said.”
Michael J. Sullivan, Theft of Swords

Rob Thurman
“I am your brother. I was supposed to be your brother before either of us was born. Karmic debt. It appears I was Vlad the Impaler or Genghis Khan in a past life.”
Rob Thurman, Blackout
