“Only a very special type of man can love one woman to the exclusion of everyone else. To the exclusion of everything else. To carry her memory across half the world and back again because of it, knowing that death is likely all that awaits him.’ He paused, purely for effect. ‘A very special type of man indeed.”
Duncan M. Hamilton, The Wolf of the North

“He half expected deformities, crazed, manic behaviour; something, anything, that would mark them out as being his natural enemy. He was disappointed. It was more difficult to hate someone who looked just like the man who lived in the next house.”
Duncan M. Hamilton, The Wolf of the North

“He wanted to take hold of it properly, but as he tried to build up the courage to say something, do something, Spot let out a thunderous fart.”
Duncan M. Hamilton, The Wolf of the North
