The Dialogue: Kendra and Rhys

The pace is picking up.

Linwood Barclay writes good dialogue.

For example:

They found a nearby Denny’s and demanded coffee immediately. Kendra ordered a veggie omelette, Rhys went for the steak and eggs.

“You know, I usually work alone,” Rhys said as he sipped on his first cup.

“Same,” she said. “But the client was right, figuring this was a two-person job.”

“Yeah,” he said. “Different.”

“So, Rhys, you got a real name?”

“I do. But how do you know it isn’t Rhys?”

“No one would really want to be named Rhys. If it was your name, you’d change it.”

“How about Kendra? Sounds like you walked out of a Chanel ad.”

“Okay, so I’m not Kendra and you’re not Rhys.”

Rhys raised his mug and smiled. “To us, whoever we are.”
