“If you were an animal, what kind would it be?"
"A dog. I'd take people in my teeth like rats and shake some sense into them.”
Aline Templeton, Cold in the Earth
tags: dogs, sense

“With her mother's remarks about his uncle in mind she looked at him with fresh interest and was forced to acknowledge that he too was actually a bit of a hunk. His hair was short, very dark and curly, and he had the sort of craggy face which might no longer be fashionable in the age of the New Man and the sarong but which would certainly appeal to any woman whose favourite fantasy involved caves and clubs and a bit of chest-pounding.”
Aline Templeton, Cold in the Earth

“Baby’s OK. It’s the wife and her mother. I don’t have the Gaelic and all they do is blether away. Sounds like breaking glass with their teeth.”
Aline Templeton, Dead in the Water: A Marjory Fleming Thriller
