12. Which hero do you want to hear more about?
"He had taken a pipe out of his pocket and was lighting it. It made him look very English. Apart from this, in his nondescript and rather shabby clothes, he might have been anything, anybody, from anywhere."
"My first impression of Raoul de Valmy was that he was remarkably good-looking...He merely looked tough, arrogant, and, at the moment, furious."
"I was alone in that quiet little temple with Richard Byron, who had been acquitted of murder on the grounds of insufficient evidence, and who was looking at me now as if he would like to choke me."
"Then he looked straight at me, and it was with something of a shock that I met his eyes. They weren't dark, as I had expected. They were grey, very clear and light, and violently alive."
"I saw a strongly build man of about thirty, carelessly dressed in slacks and a sleeveless Sea Island shirt which exposed a chest and arms that might have belonged to any of the Greek navvies I was to see building the roads with their bare hands and very little more."
"He had at that time--he was 29--three terrifyingly good novels to his credit, as well as a reputation for a scarifying tongue."
