“That must have been a ballroom once,” she said, as she glanced back at the conference–cum–dining room. For an instant she could imagine it: Women dressed like Anna Karenina. Hussars and diplomats. Candlelight softening the lines on their faces. “And this used to be a garden,” Michael added. “Like Stalin’s world used to be Russia. It’s only going to get drabber.”
Francine Mathews, Too Bad to Die

“There are a number of ways to die, Willi. One of them is a spiritual kind of murder. The body lives on, but the soul’s gone out of it.”
Francine Mathews, Jack 1939

“Set a thief to catch a thief,”
Francine Mathews, Jack 1939
