“I almost let it go. I think it was the yellow dress. It made me want to give her the benefit of the doubt. What can you say about a woman who wears a yellow dress to break into an office at night? How bad can her intentions be?
Still, I was reasonably certain she wasn't telling the truth. Not that it bothered me. Not really. I watched her sitting there, bent slightly forward, the palm of her right hand open in her lap, her left hand rubbing her shoulder. Lips curled in a smile. Innocent eyes looking back at me. It was like being lied to by a basket of kittens.(p134)”
Harry Dolan, Very Bad Men

“Come on," I said. "You think you're going to ask the wrong question and--what?--the Spencers are going to make you disappear?"
"I can't rule it out," she said.
"Actually, I think you can."
"We'll see. I'll call you after, let you know how it goes. If you don't hear from me, well, you do what you think is right. If I disappear, maybe you can find me."
Her voice had turned careless and light, but I thought I could still hear an undertone of gravity in it.
"If you can't find me," she said, "I wouldn't mind being avenged.(p159)”
Harry Dolan, Very Bad Men

“Ornate language tended to unsettle him. Passages from nineteenth-century novels might glow like hot coals or squirm like heaps of snakes. In fact, he tried not to read anything written before the First World War. Hemingway made a good cutoff point. Hemingway's sentences were a nice deep blue, and they mostly held still, like stalks of wheat on a windless day.(p18)”
Harry Dolan, Very Bad Men
