“Willing to bet my right hand that he’s already started research.” Carrington stopped his pacing. “Well, yes. He’d already started last night. You can’t place mysterious words in front of a librarian and expect him not to.”

No Cage for a Crow by M.R. Graham
"AAAAH so exciting! Not only was it hard to put down, but I was dazzled by the atmosphere (historical details, description) and the characterization. Also, as I mentioned in a previous update, it was just plain fun to read a young Sherlock. So seri..." Read more of this review »

Modesty Blaise by Peter O'Donnell
"Spies were definitely ultra-glamorous in the Sixties, and i'm a man who can appreciate an exotic location and brazen promiscuity, but i have to say i'm not a big fan of spies, as they tend to be know-it-all twats. I do love the Roger Moore Bonds t..." Read more of this review »
Modesty Blaise by Peter O'Donnell
"Note, May 19, 2016: I just edited this review to correct one misspelled word.

British author Peter O'Donnell created the iconic character of Modesty Blaise in 1963 as the heroine of an action adventure comic strip. He didn't do the art work for the..." Read more of this review »

Amazon 4; Goodreads 3.5: I liked both characters and plot.

Rylan's conflict of loyalties/ priorities/ ethics, and his changing view of tech-interface "wizards", give him a strong character arc. Jaime is also a sympathetic and likable character, with

“You, Lieutenant, are often crude, you are certainly rude, and have very little sense of how to be the wife—in public—of a man in Roarke’s position. And you would do anything, no matter what the personal risk, to keep him from harm. She will never love him. You will never do anything but.”

“the black-and-white tom rubbing his legs a few times in the classic cat fashion of this might be love or this might be attempted murder by tripping cleverly disguised as affection. Difficult to tell with cats.”
Gail Carriger, Competence

Virgil to Percy: "Well, sir, no offense, but you're rather shaky with all things moral and ethical yourself."
Percy thought he ought to be even more affronted, but he found this to be more like a compliment than not. It implied that he never allowed his scientific analysis of a situation to be troubled by how the rest of the world thought it ought to be.”
Gail Carriger, Competence

Martha Wells
“I hate caring about stuff. But apparently once you start, you can't just stop.”
Martha Wells, Rogue Protocol

“They were all annoying and deeply inadequate humans, but I didn’t want to kill them. Okay, maybe a little.”
Martha Wells, Rogue Protocol

“... a centred confidence that where his own conscience had led him, his lover would surely follow.  Eventually.
And Harry, who had had no prior reason to believe the truth of that assumption, suddenly saw it made plain in Draco's face as he in turn looked at his lover: his relief, his fierce exultation at the vindication, and his sheer blazing pride in Neville's magnanimity: the pride of someone terrified of heights who sees someone he cares about to parachute from fifteen thousand feet.
Harry gulped.
Oh god.  Please don't let me die before someone chooses to look at me like that.
(Kindle Locations 1514-1519)”
