“The past informs the present. Memory makes the map we carry, no matter how hard we try to erase it.”
Cara Black, Murder in the Bastille

“All the what ifs in life were encompassed in that long pause.”

“The nurse expelled air. “Who knows? The X-ray technicians went on strike. We’re run off our feet.” She hurried off to answer a doctor’s call from the corridor. Great. The season of grèves. Spring must be coming.”
Cara Black, Murder Below Montparnasse
