Interview with photographer Mike Van der Vord.
  ' You know what we believers say,' Father Leary went on.
  ' When something like this happens, it's a test for all of us.
It's a way of making us stronger.' The head on his Guinness
was perfect. He took a swallow, licked his lips thoughtfully.
  ' That's what we say; it may not be what we think.'
He looked into his drink.
  ' It didn't make me strong. I went back to the whisky.'
  ' I can understand that.'
  ' Until a friend reminded me it was a lazy way out, the
cowardly way.'
  ' And who's to say he's not right?'
  ' "Faint-Heart and the Sermon",' Rebus said with a smile.
  ' What's that?"
  ' A song. But maybe it's us, too.'
- from The Hanging Garden by Ian Rankin.
