out of context theater presents:

For some reason, I decided a few weeks back to read all of the Inspector Wexford novels again. I was pretty sure there were a few I had never read, so I decided to read them in order so I would catch those. Since at the time of this decision I was reading the newest one, I decided to read them in order backwards.

I have almost reached the end, and in fact I just finished reading The Best Man to Die which has among its characters a dentist named Jolyon Vigo.

I was nearly asleep, having nodded into the spine twice, when I encountered a conversation during the denouement between Wexford, Burden and Crocker (three stodgy adult males) which contains the line:

"If you were stud farming humans, wouldn't you chose Vigo as your ideal stallion?"

Close enough. I had to get up and share....
