O - Officer Burnett + Quotes




Officer Burnett is a good guy who only wants to do good. He knows that officers aren’t always popular among the people, especially with Donovan whose brother (an Internal Affairs Investigator) was murdered by corrupt cops, but that doesn’t stop him from doing whatever he needs to do to serve and protect. Including becoming an ally to Donovan. He’s one of the few cops Donovan learns to trust in Seismic Crimes.

Officer Burnett is kind, easy going, and has a big heart. Here’s a few snippets of conversations featuring Burnett.

Quote #1:

“I’m Officer Burnett and I’m just trying to get the facts. Two of our men called in a murder of an Internal Affairs investigator and cited you as the suspect they saw at the murder scene. Then you fled from them. Now you’re here, and you’re telling us you and the woman out there killed one of our men in self-defense. You’re lucky we didn’t stun you on sight. Why don’t you tell us everything from the beginning? You said your brother called you. Why don’t you start from there?”

Quote #2:

Burnett held the door open for her. Donovan stood and she went to him, needing contact with him. He hooked his arms around her and pulled her into his body. She closed her eyes, thinking about how close he had come to being charged with murder.

They may not know each other well, but already, she couldn’t imagine her life without him.

After a moment, a throat cleared. “Seems like the two of you are pretty close.”

Beth peeked up at Donovan’s grin. “Natural disasters can bring people together,” he told Burnett.

“They sure can.”

"Natural disasters can bring people together."
I love this little nod to the Disaster Series. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks, Yvonne!

Chrys Fey said...

Of course! And my books prove that theory, too. ;)

Pat Hatt said...

But will a natural disaster pull a Speed, after it's over, can the relationship last? Or do we get a Speed 2, blah lol

Chrys Fey said...

That's funny that you mentioned that because a reviewer/blogger wondered the same thing. I can assure a HEA. :)

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

Interesting quotes. I think I like Officer Burnett.

Tamara Narayan said...

It's a great time for some positive role models in the police department. Hurrah for someone like Officer Burnett.

Chrys Fey said...

I like him, too. Though he doesn't get nearly enough page time.

Chrys Fey said...

There are a lot of good officers are there. More good than bad. :)

I must read this! I can't wait to pick up where I left off in Seismic Crimes. Donovan can use all the friends he can get.

Those were some great quotes. Now that is an officer I would love to meet.

diedre Knight said...

A character like Burnett is a perfect mollifier for tense situations - good job! Great quotes too ;-)

Nas said...

Great quotes. Go, Officer Burnett!

He's good for that. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Nicola!

Chrys Fey said...

Well, this is for Seismic Crimes. :) Have you read Seismic Crimes or just Hurricane Crimes?

He sure can!

Chrys Fey said...

He's a great officer. He does the job right.

Chrys Fey said...

He is a good character. I should give him more page time.

YES! :)

Elizabeth Seckman said...

He sounds like an awesome character!

sherry fundin said...

Right. Meant Hurricane Crimes.

Yanting Gueh said...

I can picture Officer Burnett easily. One of the cuddly nice cops in crime drama - loyal, has integrity, without very big ambitions, but definitely the partner you'd want because you know you can depend on him.

Sherry Ellis said...

I liked Officer Burnett!

Mary Kirkland said...

Great quotes.

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

Easy to relate to these fictional characters. They feel very real. Great job.

Unknown said...

Officer Burnett sounds like he's an admirable guy. I do love these Imaginary Friends we all have.

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks, Elizabeth!

Chrys Fey said...

He is exactly like a cuddly, nice cop. That is a perfect description of him. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Awesome!

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks.

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Joylene!

Chrys Fey said...

He is an admirable guy. He does a lot of good.

Chrys Fey said...

Haha! I figured. ;)

cleemckenzie said...

Gotta love the guy. Really.

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks, C Lee!

J.H. Moncrieff said...

He sounds like a great character. Do you interview cops before or during the writing process? Or go it alone?

Chrys Fey said...

I pretty much go it alone, but I always do research.
