"It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. " -- Rose Kennedy

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. ”  -- Plato

“The life of the dead is set in the memory of the living. ”  -- Marcus Tullius Cicero

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love. ”  -- Washington Irving

“We all wear masks and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing our own skin.”  -- André Berthiaume

“I am an invisible man. No I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe: Nor am I one of your Hollywood movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids - and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, simply because people refuse to see me.”  -- Ralph Ellison

“Without knowledge, life is no more than the shadow of death.”  -- Molière

“Everyone calls himself a friend, but only a fool relies on it: nothing is commoner than the name, nothing rarer than the thing.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine

“Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine


Exit Strategy (Nadia Stafford #1) by Kelley Armstrong

Exit Strategy - Kelley Armstrong

Mmm Jack reminded me a lot of Gibbs from the tv show Ncis, with his silent almost non verbal communication. It would be nice to see a love connection between him and Nadia.

At first I was worried about POV, but its mostly Nadia and a few various characters.

After a few unfortunate series busts I was very happy to start this series. It more than lived up to my expectations and in the end I was very pleased.

I like Nadia as a character and her moral compass. The kill that got her tossed outta the force - Well I don't see that as a negative at all. 

I'm not much a fan of Evelyn. I don't like bs or games. I think that's why I like Jack, although I certainly won't mind some more back story. 

I loved the plot. And drawing Charles Manson into it was nice.
