Iago says he's going to drop it for Cassio to find.
Even though the handkerchief is a mere "trifle, light as air," once Othello sees it in another man's possession, he'll think he has solid proof that Desdemona is unfaithful. When Iago says the handkerchief will be "as proofs of holy writ" to Othello, he means that Othello will see the handkerchief as the gospel truth that Desdemona's a cheater.
IAGO The Moor already changes with my poison; Dangerous conceits are in their natures poisons, Which at the first are scarce found to distaste, But with a little act upon the blood Burn like the mines of Sulphur. I did say so.
Wednesday Wednesday: “Dangerous conceits are, in their nature, poisons.” | The Thought Experiment
Look, where he comes. Not poppy, nor mandragora Nor all the drowsy syrups of the world Shall ever medicine thee to that sweet sleep Which thou owedst yesterday. Iago realizes the unbelievable power of jealousy. Here, he claims that he has poisoned Othello's mind by suggesting Desdemona may be up to something naughty.
Because Iago has succeeded in making Othello suspicious, Othello will never, ever have a good night of sleep again, not even if he used the best sleeping medicine in the world.

Extremely well written and highly literate tale of a private detective from a rural area outside Edinburgh.
I loved his use of Scottish dialect at times. The plot is a somewhat believable tale of misdirection, a cult compound [this stretched credulity], weird sex behaviors that would not be as wide-spread as suggested, and the intriguing way the Jack figures out what is really happening. The main character is Jack Black, a private investigator. The characters tend to be much more likable - and this is true of the Scots I have known. One sneaky red-herring suggesting a romance that could be - and Jack doesn't follow through, damnit!
Another PI novel but SO much better. The writing flows so smoothly and it's riddled with humor interspersed with words I actually had to look up.

Some characters speak with a Scottish accent and that just helps the book. The characters are well thought out and this PI is the best!!!! Wonderful read that will have you laughing out loud.

Fantastic way to spend the day. This is a very entertaining read that is narrated by our hero, with some of the funniest lines I have ever read. There is murder, perverted sex, and a religious cult, what more could you ask for.

I am looking forward to meeting Jack Black again. Being new to downloading e-books on a Kindle, I have been limiting myself to the free downloads. This book, Dangerous Conceits, was one of them. It turned out to be a surprisingly fun read, with a good plot.
