DJ´s Bait in the Box # 65


This novel is neither the first in a series nor the writer´s first series.

“She turned, mouth open to say something – what? – when she saw the bloody footprint on the floor.

´Emma,´ she whispered, dropping the phone as she looked up the stairs toward her daughter´s bedroom.

She stopped at the top of the stairs, shocked at the broken furniture, the splintered glass on the floor. Her vision tunneled and she saw Emma lying in a bloody heap at the end of the hallway. A man stood over her, a knife in his hand.”


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.

DJ´s gæt en bog # 65
Denne roman er hverken den første i en serie eller forfatterens første serie.

”Med åben mund vendte hun sig om for at sige noget – hvad? – da hun fik øje på de blodige fodaftryk på gulvet.

´Emma´, hviskede hun og gav slip på telefonen, mens hun sprang op ad trappen til sin datters værelse.


Hun stoppede brat for enden af trappen, rystet over synet af de ødelagte møbler og glasskårene på gulvet. Hendes synsfelt snævrede sig ind, og hun så Emma ligge i en blodig plamage for enden af gangen. En mand stod lænet ind over hende med en kniv i hånden.”

Ooooh ... sounds exciting! but I've no idea what it is.

....Petty Witter sagde ...

Just an observation, I seem to remember you featuring a similar vase in one of your excellent stories a while ago - are we due another offering soon?

Margot Kinberg sagde ...

Dorte - If I'm right, this author has an awfully appropriate surname.

Dorte H sagde ...

Tim: I think it is quite exciting.

Tracy: not right now. May + June are exam months so ...

Margot: what an awfully appropriate clue :D

Jose Ignacio Escribano sagde ...

Once again I'm afraid I'll have to wait if I want to find out book and author.

Dorte H sagde ...

Jose: some of the author´s books are out in Spanish, but perhaps not this one yet.

R. T. sagde ...

I would offer a clue, but I have to go instead to the hospital emergency room; I fractured my ankle, and I hope they don't have the same slaughter-house MDs that I encountered previously.

Dorte H sagde ...

R.T.: Fine!

But I hope my readers have guessed you are helpful rather than hurt :D

....Petty Witter sagde ...

Of course. I shall look forward then.

Dorte H sagde ...

Tracy: it is good to know that there are readers out there who are waiting for my little stories.
