I too always forget between readings that it's told in the third person.

These next lines are from Gore's "Smart Guys Don't Snore" (reprinted in SPEAK OF THE DEVIL).

  Her eyes, suddenly enormous, sought mine. In her little-girl voice she added, as a question, "Being safe?" Then with urgency, "if you'll be loyal to me, Thaddeus, then I know I'll be safe."

  "Hey, was Sam loyal to Brigid? You can count on me, kid."
