“If we take the president of GM, they'll make us pay to give him back." (said by a kidnapper)”
Owen Laukkanen, The Professionals

“At first, the stricken ship was just a smudge on the horizon, a formless mirage, visible only from the tops of the swells. As the Gale Force plowed closer, the smudge separated, and McKenna could see the Coast Guard cutter, stately and proud, and the Pacific Lion herself, a half-sunk bathtub toy on an enormous scale, ungainly and wallowing in an uneasy sea.”
Owen Laukkanen, Gale Force
