Death Bringer (Skulduggery Pleasant) - Derek Landy

"Just a few questions for you, Mr. Dunne. Or Kenny. Can I call you Kenny? I feel we've become friends these past few seconds. Can I call you Kenny?"

 

"Sure," Kenny said, slightly baffled.

 

"Thank you. Thank you very much. It's important you feel comfortable around me, Kenny. It's important we build up a level of trust. That way I'll catch you unprepared when I suddenly accuse you of murder."

 

Yeah, Skulduggery, you sure know how to make people comfortable and build up trust, I'll give you that. I mean, if a regular person wanted to build up a level of trust that's exactly how they would go about it, right?
