DJ´s Bait in the Box # 72

This book is not a debut, and it does not sound as if it is for dog lovers or the faint-hearted.

“He must have stabbed Jessica too before she ran off because there was a trail of blood, a path that led them to her, although not at first because the field of wheat had closed around her, like a golden blanket. She was lying with her arms around the body of the dog and their blood had mingled and soaked into the dry earth, feeding the grain, like a sacrifice to the harvest. Joseph died where he was, strapped into the pushchair. She liked to think that he never woke up but she didn´t know.”

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.

Dorte, Am glad to see your Bait in the Box is back. Good news for all your fans.

I think I do recognise this one...the title of the book is in the form of a question perhaps? and the main character has (to my thinking anyway) his surname and first names the wrong way around

Margot Kinberg sagde ...

Dorte - I was wondering when I'd get the good news that you have a new Bait-in-the-Box posted ;-)

....Petty Witter sagde ...

I've no idea but if the box is anything to go by perhaps it is written by a Scottish writer.

Jose: I´ll try to come up with one most weeks, but sometimes I am reading ´obscure books´ that no one knows, and then the game is not very funny.

Bernadette: two points to you! (plus a bonus point because you are so right about that ´first name´)

Jose Ignacio Escribano sagde ...

That was not a complain Dorte, just good news.

Dorte H sagde ...

Margot: LOL

Tracy: good detective work. Not exactly WRITTEN BY a Scot but ....

Dorte H sagde ...

Jose: sorry, I was a bit slow there ;)
My excuse is that I just got home from work.

(But at least I didn´t think you WERE complaining).

Clarissa: I am on p 159, and I can´t wait to find out how it ends. See you all after another 200 pages :D

Maxine sagde ...

Ah, "when will there be......"

Kelly sagde ...

I don't know and probably don't want to being that I'm definitely a dog lover!! I'm sure I'll be brave and read your review, though.

I do love your bait box since I love Walker's shortbread!

BookPlease sagde ...

At last I know one of your Baits in the Box! So it's not bad news this week.

I loved this book.

Dorte H sagde ...

Maxine: yes: Ahhh! (but still 100 pages to go)

Kelly: I won´t say I love them, but I thought the truck was the most perfect bait.

Margaret: no; that´s nice, isn´t it ;)
