DJ´s Bait in the Box # 53

[Julia´s wonderful tin IS a clue - though it may be misleading]

This week the book is sheer gambling, I have no idea whether you read this kind of thriller or not, but let us see – I know that my readers are amazingly well-read and resourceful! And at least the book is out in both English and Danish.

“Harry and the others did not really believe that A…. had disappeared without a trace until the train went through the suburbs of Aberdeen, and it was announced through the loudspeakers that they approached the terminal. They began searching the toilets, but no signs of A…. On the other hand they found his travel bag in the luggage rack where he had put it himself, and brought it along as they tottered out in a gray and cold Aberdeen afternoon.”

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.

Gæt en bog # 53.
Ugens bog er et sats. Jeg aner ikke, om denne spændingsroman appellerer til mine læsere, men nu får vi se. I det mindste er den udgivet på både engelsk og dansk.

”Harry og de andre troede ikke for alvor på, at A…. var forsvundet sporløst, før toget begyndte at køre igennem Aberdeens forstæder, og det blev meddelt over højttaleranlægget, at de nærmede sig endestationen. De gav sig til at se efter på toiletterne, men der var ingen A…. De fandt til gengæld hans rejsetaske på bagagehylden, hvor han selv havde anbragt den, og tog den med, da de stavrede ud i en grå og kold Aberdeen-eftermiddag.”

Reglerne:
Hvis du kan genkende citatet, eller hvis du tror du kan gætte hvem forfatteren er, så læg venligst en kommentar. Skriv bare et hint til nye besøgende, lad være med at ødelægge fornøjelsen for andre. Bogen bliver anmeldt på fredag som sædvanlig.

Dorte - I'm sorry to admit it, but I don't recognize this one : (. I must be off my game...

Bernadette: I don´t really know if my readers read this author, but you are probably not the only one.

Dorte H sagde ...

Elizabeth: good. You don´t have a helpful clue for all my poor clueless readers?

Margot: or maybe it was just the wrong choice.

Uriah Robinson sagde ...

Is the author very wealthy? I really don't have a clue except the castle looks familiar in a scholarly fashion.

Dorte H sagde ...

Norman: he might be, but the castle is related to the setting of the book :D

Jose Ignacio Escribano sagde ...

I'm also clueless this week.

Uriah Robinson sagde ...

I am even more clueless.

I can never get these, but I have fun reading people's comments and then waiting for the answer!

Hi Dorte,
Can't help anyone with this one. I have no clue. Other than Harry Bosche. Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great evening!

Hi Sherrie.

Your clue is not as far from the truth as you may think :D

Dorte H sagde ...

Beth: you are right that quite often the interaction is what is most fun.
