Quotes by Gregg Olsen  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“If only these walls could talk…the world would know just how hard it is to tell the truth in a story in which everyone’s a liar.”
Gregg Olsen, Envy

“Some of this story is completely true. And some of it isn't. Like truth, evil comes in all sorts of flavors. Some bitter. Some deceptively sweet. Sometimes it comes with a heavy price. While most people don't invite evil into their lives, the dirty little secret is that an invitation isn't necessary. Locked doors don't matter. Neither do fancy security systems. Evil is kind of amazing when you think about it. She knows how to get inside.”
Gregg Olsen, Envy

“Why you need a reason for everything? Reason is something people say to make sense of things that don't make sense.”
Gregg Olsen, Envy

“Her daughter's comment amused Emily. 'I didn't know stalking could be a group activity”
Gregg Olsen, Heart of Ice

“I'd tell my mother to, you know, go you-know-what herself and I would go help those children. They're in an orphanage and they've got family! That's sickening. What does John do? Nothing. His kids are in an orphanage... and he does nothing.
