The quote comes from Chapter One, and I'm not sure of the page number since I'm reading it on my iPad (it's Location 43-55 of the Kindle edition). At this point in the story, we've been introduced to the protagonist (and narrator of the story) Richard Hannay and he's being visited by an upstairs neighbor who seems in need of his help (I know this is more than two lines, but I didn't want to break up the passage):
There was a tray of drinks on a table beside him, from which he filled himself a stiff whisky-and-soda. He drank it off in three gulps, and cracked the glass as he set it down.Okey-dokey. Well, I can tell you that the neighbor is definitely NOT a vampire, ghost or zombie, but beyond that my lips are sealed.
'Pardon,' he said, 'I'm a bit rattled tonight. You see, I happen at this moment to be dead.'
