“How often have miscarriages of justice been overturned because some punter wouldn’t stop digging?”

I came across this line while reading Val McDermid’s thriller A Distant Echo and it couldn’t help but jump out at me as a potential epigraph for Hangman’s Game. She uses “punter” in the British sense of the word, but still, it fits the story quite well.

My other leading contender is a quote I saw years ago, in a news story, from former Vikings punter Darren Bennett. He said “The last thing an NFL coach needs is a punter with issues.”

We’ll see.
