“Quote taken from Chapter 1:

"The police should be in it, not us. We’re out of here.” Bill did an about-face to retrace their route to the door.

Piper whipped out a hand and snagged him by the shirttail. Her tone returned to crisp and decisive. “Slow down, Roadrunner. I’m not ready to leave. We’ve got work to do.”

Incredulous, he stared gape-mouthed at her. “You'd better explain,” he said.

She wiggled her nose. “I’m growing nosier by the second about the circumstances surrounding Anna’s murder.”
Ed Lynskey, The Corpse Wore Gingham

Patricia Highsmith
“My imagination functions much better when I don't have to speak to people.”
Patricia Highsmith

“Trust is a choice. Actually, trust is more of a desperate, hopeful guess based on limited information.”

She craved a tall glass of the fresh-squeezed lemonade from the pitcher she’d left chilling
“She craved a tall glass of the fresh-squeezed lemonade from the pitcher she’d left chilling in the fridge. Two glasses served with a generous slice of pound cake with orange glaze icing sounded twice as nice.”
Ed Lynskey, Fur the Win

Quote taken from Chapter 1 of The Corpse Wore Gingham: You love to figure out
“Quote taken from Chapter 1 of The Corpse Wore Gingham:

"You love to figure out things as much as I do,” Piper said.

“Like what?” Bill asked.

“You fix broken stuff,” Piper replied.

“Repairing a broken toaster or steam iron is far different than unraveling a murder mystery," Bill said.”
Ed Lynskey, The Corpse Wore Gingham
