  • Quotes

    • Ardis: His name was Marcus Crane. He was a retired Presbyterian minister. If this is the same killer, this is the first time he's targeted a Protestant.
      Frank: What was the cause of death?
      Ardis: Again, blunt trauma to the head to incapacitate the victim. The instrument was wedge-shaped, probably a golf club, but he died of drowning.
      Frank: The torture of heretics.
      Ardis: Golf or drowning?
      Frank: The staging is just another method of determining the piety of the accused heretic.
      Ardis: A one-man inquisition.
      Frank: He planned this very carefully -- took time to watch the victim, to plan the ceremony. Sermo generalis.
      Ardis: If that's what he's doing, Frank, what is he trying to tell us?
      Frank: His choice to alter his methods is semiotic. The coin in the mouth. The elaboration of details. They're not meant as a message. They're for his own satisfaction.
      Ardis: His lack of denominational concerns would indicate that he's becoming more random.
      Frank: Not more random, more precise. My guess is he knew these men, that he was once a member of their church... a seminarian or an altar boy.
      Ardis: There's something else here. Something they found on the body.
      Frank: What?
      Ardis: A man's wedding band in the victim's stomach.
