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

“They say women can fake an orgasm, but men can fake a whole relationship.”
Colin Falconer, The Naked Husband

“Tom, you couldn’t punch the froth off a Guinness.”
Colin Falconer, The Unkillable Kitty O'Kane

“Telling you and putting it on the front pages of the newspapers is just about the same thing!”
Colin Falconer, The Unkillable Kitty O'Kane

Topics Mentioning This Author

“They found him in the cloister, lying on his back with ice in his beard. He was half conscious, muttering about a Templar knight, a secret commission from the Pope, and a beautiful woman on a white pony.”
Colin Falconer, Silk Road

“His fellow monks carried him back to his cell and laid him on the hard cot that had been his bed for the last twenty years. He was an old man now and there was nothing to be done. His eyes had the cold sheen of death. A brother went to fetch the abbot so that the old fellow might make his last confession.”
Colin Falconer, Silk Road

“The head had been impaled on a railing outside the Royal Courts of Justice in the Strand in the early hours of a cold November morning. There was a fine dusting of frost on the corpse’s hair and eyelids which gave it a festive touch.”
Colin Falconer, Cry Justice

“Kitty O’Kane dreamed of a kind husband and a just life; what she had was haddock water for supper and a dribble of her own blood, seen at close quarters, on the toe of her father’s scuffed boot.”
Colin Falconer, The Unkillable Kitty O'Kane

“The dead man looked disconsolate. Reasonably so, in the circumstances, Charlie thought.”
Colin Falconer, Cry Justice
