DJ´s Bait in the Box # 60


This crime novel is a debut and the first in a rather short series.

“Douglas was tied into the blue kitchen chair with several strands of rope. His throat had been cut clean across, right back to the vertebra, his head was sitting off centre from his neck. Splashes and spurts of his blood were drying all over the carpet. One long red splatter extended four feet diagonally from the chair, slashing across the arm of the settee and nearly hitting the skirting board on the far wall.”

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.
Denne krimi er en debut og den første i en forholdsvis kort serie.

“Douglas var bundet til den blå køkkenstol med adskillige længder reb. Hans hals var skåret over helt ind til nakkehvirvlen, så hovedet ikke længere sad helt, som det skulle. Blodet var allerede ved at tørre ind på gulvtæppet. Ét langt stænk strakte sig i en diagonal fra stolen og skar sig tværs over armlænet på sofaen, indtil det næsten ramte fodlisten på den fjerneste væg.”

Reglerne:
Hvis du kan genkende citatet, eller hvis du tror du kan gætte forfatteren, så læg venligst en kommentar. Læg bare et hint i stedet for at ødelægge fornøjelsen for andre besøgende. Bogen bliver anmeldt på fredag som sædvanlig.

Oh another one I think (hope) I recognise. If so I read it last year (and loved it - my kinda chic lit). As for a clue...the author is a lady from the same great country that produced Donna Moore.

Dorte - Ooh, if I'm right, you've chosen a jewel of a title ; ). Or at least there's a hidden jewel there ; ). Excellent selection.

Bernadette: yes, she is one of a great bunch of writers.

Margot: oh, I had to think for a moment there, but you are right as usual.

Patti: it is probably a bit outside your haunts, but I think you´d like it.
