    Summary

    I had no choice in this, but I would have chosen it; I was that weak. There lay the bitterness.

    Summary

    “I hate the beach,” I said, startling myself with the words, with the vehemence of them. Something about the darkness, something about the fact that it was Richie, made me honest for a moment, “I hate the sounds it makes, the waves, and the wind, and, actually, it is really cold now you mention it.” I swallowed, shocked to find that there was a lump in my throat. What was I doing, almost crying in some motel bed in the middle of a case, just because I wasn’t fond of sand?
    “I…” Richie started, and trailed off. “It is cold.” I heard him moving again, and with the sharpness that comes from listening in the dark I heard his breath speed up, the soft sound of his feet hitting the floor. When he spoke again, he sounded more uncertain than I had heard him in a long time, “tell me if this isn’t okay.”

    Summary

    “No,” Laura said, reading my mind like she always could when she tried, “you’re getting the wrong idea. She’s,” Laura lifted the phone, passed it across the table to show me a photo of a grinning toddler, smiling through popsicle-sticky lips, one hand tucked in the pocket of blue overalls, “she’s my daughter.”

    Summary

    I don’t have bad cases. Won’t even use the words: if you go around saying, this is gonna be a bad one, then presto, you’re mucking up even the smallest decisions and surprise of surprises, your case goes wrong. Mark Dolan’s murder was everything I hate. That shouldn’t have stopped me from getting a solve, but it drew my eyes off the ball for a minute. Sometimes that is all it takes.

    (A year after the events of Broken Harbor, Mick "scorcher" Kennedy is back on the police force and solving a new case, still processing traumas and navigating broken relationships.)

    Summary

    I should have felt a snap, you don’t do this with people you work with, I should have felt that rule break inside me like a wishbone. I didn’t. It felt solid, as everything was slipping around me, like the sharp slice of a rock on the sole of my foot as the water and sand rushed past me in the outgoing tide.

    Summary

    "That was when I felt it: that needle-fine vibration, starting in my temples and moving down the bones into my eardrums. Some detectives feel it in the backs of their necks, some get it in the hair on their arms—I know one poor sap who gets it in the bladder, which can be inconvenient—but all the good ones feel it somewhere. It gets me in the skull bones. Call it what you want—social deviance, psychological disturbance, the animal within, evil if you believe in that: it’s the thing we spend our lives chasing. All the training in the world won’t give you that warning when it comes close. You get it or you don’t. I took a quick look at Richie: grimacing and licking his lips, like an animal that’s tasted something putrid. He got it in his mouth, which he would need to learn to hide, but at least he got it." -- Mick "Scorcher" Kennedy, Broken Harbour

    Summary

    “Your dream partner grows in the back of your mind, secret, like your dream girl. Mine grew up with violin lessons, floor-to-high-ceiling books, red setters, a confidence he took for granted and a dry sense of humor no one but me would get. Mine was everything that wasn’t Conway, and I would’ve bet hers was everything that wasn’t me. But the click was there. Maybe, just for a few days, we could be good enough for each other." – Stephen Moran, The Secret Place
