“The buffaloes hardly ever cry but you dagos always wriggle your way to the bars and start bawling,”
Mark Smith, The Death of the Detective

“What an awesome privilege for some, looking upon a human body that houses the forbidden mystery of death.”
Mark Smith, The Death of the Detective

“Inside him festered a craving for a vengeance, national in character, that would purge with floodtides of spilled blood all that was unrighteous and unjust in the city, the country, the world, and that craving, which had yet to be satisfied or expiated, could at times devour him.”
Mark Smith, The Death of the Detective
