“People disappear all the time. Ask a policeman. Better yet, ask a journalist. Disappearances are bread-and-butter to journalists.
Young girls run away from home. Young children stray from their parents never to be seen again. Housewives each the end of their tether and take their grocery money and a taxi to the station. International financiers change their names and vanish into the smoke of imported cigars.
Many of the lost will be found, eventually, dead or alive. Disappearances, after all, have explanations.
Claire speaks it, written by Diana Gabaldon. Outlander 1991.
