“I love you' is what people say when they have run out of words and can't say anything else. It is like reaching out a hand in desperation.”
Thomas Perry

“Bombs were not just weapons. They were something more, expressions of the bomber's thoughts about you, his predictions of your behavior - what you would see, even what you would think and feel. He'd staged a presentation designed to fool you. He didn't even know your name, but you were the one he was really after. Bombs were acts of murder, but they were also jokes on you, riddles the bomber hoped were too tough for you, chances for you to pick wrong when it was almost impossible to pick right.”
Thomas Perry

“Holy shit! It wasn't them; it was him!”
Thomas Perry, Sleeping Dogs
