“Some men, despite their good deeds, are a drag on the soul and dampen all humor. Layton was the opposite. Though undoubtedly a scoundrel, he made the heart beat faster and filled the air with jesting and wit and the force of his personality, and he carried in his being an undeniable spark of intelligence and life, if not goodness… As I get older, despite the destruction such men sometimes cause, I value that spark for its own sake.”

~ Shannon Burke, Into the Savage Country
