Alice Jamieson Quotes

"When the black thing was at its worst, when the illicit cocktails and the ten-mile runs stopped working, I would feel numb as if dead to the world. I moved unconsciously, with heavy limbs, like a zombie from a horror film. I felt a pain so fierce and persistent deep inside me, I was tempted to take the chopping knife in the kitchen and cut the black thing out I would lie on my bed staring at the ceiling thinking about that knife and using all my limited powers of self-control to stop myself from going downstairs to get it."

Robert Crais Quotes

"Maggies long German shepherd nose had more than two hundred twenty-five million scent receptors. This was as many as a beagle, forty-five times more than the man, and was bettered only by a few of her hound cousins. A full eighth of her brain was devoted to her nose, giving her a sense of smell ten thousand times better than the sleeping mans, and more sensitive than any scientific device. If taught the smell of a particular mans urine, she could recognize and identify that same smell if only a single drop were diluted in a full-sized swimming pool."

Nathan Daniels Quotes

"I lay on my floor crying again… shaking. Searching for inner strength and coming up empty.

I tried to leave again, but ended up leaning my forehead against the door, feeling defeated and wishing the Grim Reaper would come for me in all his silky, black glory."

Ann Napolitano Quotes

Quotes About Historical Research

"I expressed skepticism, in the first chapter, about the utility of time machines in historical research.
