you are never so invisible as when you are as terrified of the escape as you are of the capture.

The best hiding spots are the ones that keep you on your toes. Closets may be as cavernous as tombs or as confining as coffins, depending on the architecture of your house and fears, but they must in either case remain dark. Always remember: unless it also prevents your exit, a locked door will be a dead giveaway. Crawlspaces above and below the house should have at least as many cobwebbed corpses as cardboarded keepsakes. Even if not, they remain preferable to standing-room basements and attics. Shimmying under beds is appropriate only when the bed is not yours—even better if is not your room—and you remain red-handed with blame. If you are on the run, areas said to be haunted tend to be good sanctuary, though they become increasingly harder to find the older you get. Unfortunately, the more you believe to be possible after death, the braver you have to be in life. Eventually you will settle for known crime scenes, even if all you can find are those with a history of manslaughter and suicide. You will, however, find these are far more common than you at first thought, at which point the need for endurance will eclipse your lack of bravery.
The point being, you are never so invisible as when you are as terrified of the escape as you are of the capture.
