DJ's Bait in the Box # 8

[The charming and very suitable bait box belongs to Cathy, Kittling: Books]

This book, the first in a series, has not been translated into Danish:

"At once he saw that something terrible, something beyond words, had been done to her. His stomach was strong, but the sight made him retch. He reached out - he could not help himself - and his fingertips brushed against her. The skin was chill and sticky and wet. He stepped back hastily, as if bitten by an adder, and wiped his fingers on his sleeve. She was covered with blood and now so was he."

The rules:
If you recognize the quotation, or if you think you are able to guess who wrote it, please post a comment. Just leave a hint, do not spoil the fun by giving too much away. The book will be reviewed on Friday as usual.

Is it a Scottish female writer? Or am I on the wrong track?

I am not going to reveal the sex of the writer yet, - but perhaps if people get desperate. I can tell you that it is not as far North as that, however.

Possibly an "attractive blonde" author? But I guess, I have to say. And I don't think she's Scottish, though I don't know.

I think the author might enjoy your comment, Maxine ;)
And with regard to the environment all I´ll say for now is: North of Surbiton, South of Scotland.

So Norman's clue is a Scouse connection - does the author also have another, different, North of England connection?

I think I´ll have to answer yes to that one :)
