COLD CASE by Linda Barnes
"What a country, huh? Nobody's fit except the very rich and the hard-timers [inmates], sharing the twin luxuries of time and easy gym access."
"When the phone rang, I almost let the machine handle it. I practice, but I never quite manage the seemingly simple process of call screening. I think it's because my mom always grabbed the phone first ring, answering in a quavery alto, convinced my cop Dad was lying in a gutter bleeding to death. Never happened. He was never injured in the line of duty. Nicotine killed him, not lead."
