About Inspector Cramer

10. august 2011 at 17:06 | Thalia Contostavlos

"For nine months of the year Inspector Cramer of Homicide, big and broad and turning gray,
looked the part well enough, but in the summer time the heat kept his face so red that he
was a little gaudy. He knew it and didn't like it, and as a result he was some harder to deal
with in August than in January. If an occasion arises for me to commit a murder in Manhattan
I hope it will be winter."
- Archie Goodwin

About Saul Panzer

"I have said it before and I will say it again, should I ever find myself buried up to
my neck in Indian country with honey on my forehead and the great-granddaddy
of all fire ant mounds scuttling my way, I'd trade the sight of Saul on the horizon
for half a dozen anteaters."
- Archie Goodwin
