    Summary

    “And yes, it’s “just” a car and they don’t run forever, but over the phone she sounds broken; she isn’t frustrated or angry or even hurt. She’s simply shattered by this news and it’s powerful, her grief. Hearing her voice quaver and feeling her palpable pain pulse through the phone, Alex’s heart wrenches - so much so that he books the first flight to Tasmania the next morning.”

    “There’s a gap that felt filled while he was in Tasmania and once he leaves, it grows into a wide open wound, one that aches far more than the still healing hole in his ribs from Gareth’s bullet.”

    Summary

    "For so long, she’s been burdened with so much baggage that she’s become oblivious to the pressure until she falls into Alex and immediately recognizes the contrast between a solo burden to stagger beneath and one that is shared. It’s freeing - but also incredibly disorienting, both because the sensation itself is entirely unfamiliar and because Alex (of all people) is the catalyst for it."

    Summary

    “ Alex is solid. He’s stoic. Unshakeable. Reliable.

    ...except when he pulls back the sheets and climbs into bed each night, hands trembling with fearful anticipation of the nightmare to come. A paragon of policeman’s poise laid low by the mere idea of surrendering himself to sleep - the ultimate irony of a life that’s already been far too ironic.”

    Summary

    “Do Lewis and Molly realize they’re like the ewe in the painting, staving off the inevitable? The birds surrounded Alex upon his arrival and now they close in from all sides. And he’s frustrated that he doesn’t have the strength to tell Molly that he’s sorry. (Again.) They just found each other and now she’ll have yet another loss to tally among the many she’s accumulated.”

    Summary

    "Today she can’t seem to explain anything with facts, least of all the apparition of Alex Jackson O’Connell himself in the dim light of the tunnel that holds her crime scene."

    It must be witchcraft. That's the only explanation that makes sense.
