DJ´s Bait in the Box # 38

[This ´delicious´ bait box belongs to Bookwitch.]

This thriller is not the author´s debut, yet in some sense a beginning.

“There was one crumb of comfort for him. No one knew. If today the head cashier remarked upon Vera´s death, as he very likely might, as people would by reason of her sex among other things, I knew my father would present to him a bland, mildly interested face and utter some suitable platitude. He had, after all, to survive.”

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.


Til mine danske læsere.

Undskyld! Jeg burde oversætte indlægget til dansk, og jeg ved godt, jeg er blevet slem til at snyde jer på det sidste.

Men lige nu er jeg i gang med en ny omgang Saxo forfatterskole. Det er fantastisk spændende og lærerigt, men det kræver så meget tid og energi at få noget ud af det, og et af de få steder, jeg kan hugge en hæl og klippe en tå er på min blog. Så indtil videre regner jeg med kun at blogge på engelsk.

I'm in the dark and remain clueless. I look forward to seeing how others shine some light on your difficult clue.

Dorte H sagde ...

Oh, perhaps I was too subtle.

I hope the name Vera will guide some of my readers to the right book.

Philip sagde ...

Ah, yes. Have we not all at some time wondered about a new beginning, changing our names, our identities, even the very colour of our eyes, perhaps? (I hope that's oblique enough, Dorte.)

Dorte H sagde ...

Philip: I think your clues are perfect, and I hope they will lead other readers in the right direction.

Søren sagde ...

Du er på alle måder tilgivet. Forfølg din drøm, det bliver spændende at se hvor den fører dig hen og hvilke læseoplevelser vi andre vil få :-)

Dorte H sagde ...

Tak Søren!

Og det vil nok glæde dig at høre, at jeg har fået meget ros for min evne til ´showing, not telling´ på denne uges tekst. Så et eller andet har jeg vel lært i årets løb.

I don't know a thing about that book, and I am pretty sure I haven't read it.

And congrats on doing well in writer's academy :-)

Oh, and by the way, I guess your Danish readers can read in English until you have more time to blog in Danish (that is my own excuse)
