"...B. Warren is not a violent man. A few dead birds on the glorious twelfth, salmon hauled out of some Highland stream, those are all very well. Within his orbit, shall we say. I also believe, that when it comes to bridge, he takes no prisoners." From "Darkness and Light" by John Harvey. Glorious twelfth? Any explanations? Thanks in advance for the help.

    The Glorious Twelfth is the 12th of August, the start of the grouse-shooting season in the United Kingdom. :)
