Some pretty good writing................

     The group containing Duffield was emanating an almost magnetic force over the room.  Strike saw it in the sneaking sidelong glances other occupants were shooting at them; in the respectful space left around them, a wider orbit than anybody else had been granted.  Duffield and his cohort's apparent unselfconsciousness was, Strike recognized, nothing but expert artifice;  they had, all of them, the hyper-alertness of the prey animal combined with the casual arrogance of predators.  In the inverted food chain of fame, it was the big beasts who were stalked and hunted;  they were receiving their due.

-Robert Galbraith, as excerpted from the Cuckoo's Calling
