Quotation

Delgado knew this well, as did the men he worked for. === Digger cleaned up nicely and managed to seem relaxed as he prepared to unload an hour’s worth of fiction to the jury. === The white man’s notions of justice were baffling. How can they allow a self-confessed and self-serving criminal like Todd Short to put his hand on their Bible, swear to God to tell the truth, and then spin such fantastic lies? What system of justice allows a seasoned convict to repeat statements he swears he heard in a jail cell the year before?
