    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Music is a good shorthand way to delineate character. If you want to tell the reader a lot about a character in a small space, just tell them what their musical taste is. You'll get their age, their background, whether they're gregarious or a loner.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“When a murder is satisfied, it isn't the beginning of the story; it's the middle. We shouldn't forget that fact because murder has ripples. You never go back to being the same. The people that investigate these crimes never go back to being the same as they were before they started the investigation. The people's whose lives have been affected, the victim's families, even the murderer themselves are profoundly changed. That's why murder is still the most interesting crime for us to write about, because it is the only crime where something unique is taken away from the world, something that can't be replaced.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“By that time, Rebus will be 59 and, for a CID officer, he is getting fairly long in the tooth. They will have brought in the smoking ban by 2007, so he will definitely want to retire to somewhere in the sun for a drink and a smoke.”
