“On the whole it’s not wise to remind the devil that he’s the devil, especially when we were getting on so well.”
Philip Kerr, The Lady from Zagreb

“When you get a cat to catch the mice in your kitchen, you can't expect it to ignore the rats in the cellar.”
Philip Kerr, March Violets

“A man's bookseller should keep his confidence, like his physician. What can become of a world where every man knows what another man reads? Why, sir, books would become like quacks' potions, with every mountebank in the newspapers claiming one volume's superiority over another.”
Philip Kerr, Dark Matter: The Private Life of Sir Isaac Newton
