  • "... the previous day had seen not a single hanging verdict ... But such mercy was considered dangerous, for the awful majesty of the law needs sacrifice. One maiden session (as they are called) was merciful, two in a row would seem weak."

    —Iain Pears, An Instance of the Fingerpost (New York: Riverhead Books, 1998), 176
