    Summary

    If anyone were to ask Booker why he chased Death, he would tell them. It wouldn’t be an answer anyone expected.

    If they asked Joe, he’d say it was because Booker was selfish. If Nicky, he’d say that Booker was naïve. If Andy was asked, she’d probably just laugh and say that Booker was bored.

    But if anyone bothered to ask Booker? He would say that the others weren’t wrong, but they weren’t exactly right, either. Booker would give chase, over and over again, without fail. Because Death gave him the one thing he valued above all others: quiet.


    Booker is incredibly gifted and has an extreme case of hyperthymesia. He doesn’t remember everything. But what he does remember, he just doesn’t forget.

    Summary

    “Well, shit,” the voice says, very loud and very close, and then Nicky’s head snaps to the side, much too fast. He’s been hit, he thinks, thoughts muddled. That’s why his head just- his mouth feels damp, suddenly, saliva or blood, maybe both. “How much did you give him?”

    In which an unpleasant time is had by all.

    Summary

    This is a language no one else in the world is fluent in: the glint in Nicky’s eye, the unbearable gentleness with which he pushes Yusuf flat against the bed.

    Summary

    “If I die,” Nicolò said to Yusuf, “leave the window open.”

    It was a sort of joke between them.
