DJ´s Bait in the Box # 73

[This week´s box was sent to me from Tim]

I know that it is horribly unfair to use this brand-new debut for my game, but it happens to be the one I am reading (and some of my readers are the most brilliant detectives) so what you see is what you get:

“Momentarily, my heart palpitates; my hands are clammy with sweat. This must be the nervous thrill that burglars feel. But I won´t steal anything. Emma was the thief, not me. I´ve only ever taken one thing from this house: the back door key. Secretly copied, and then returned to its hook.

I climb quietly up the stairs, avoiding places I know would groan under my weight. Night-lights illuminate the hall, making me blink. Emma´s door is ajar and I can see into the bedroom.”

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 or Saturday.

I think is about a woman keeping her innocence while she's in prision?

No idea about the quote but I love the box.

Margot Kinberg sagde ...

Dorte - If I'm right, then the title is not very masculine at all.

Anonym sagde ...

These boxes are so cool. Do I just take a picture of a box and submit as an entry to one of these posts? SO CURIOUS. :)

Jose and Margot: I thought this week´s quote was far too difficult. But then I remembered you two (and I couldn´t disappoint you, could I?)

Tracy: yes, it is terrific.

Care: the easiest way is to mail a photo to me: do.hu.ja@mail.tele.dk
- and I love when people send me new boxes.

I try my best to wait until I have a book that suits the box, though, which is why I have some in stock (Christmas tins e.g.).

I think I am too early for this title?

Dorte H sagde ...

Maxine: LOL
I think you have the key to something there.

Kelly sagde ...

Beautiful bait box....and not a brand I'm familiar with.

Kelly: I don´t know Grasmere Gingerbread either, but it has a wonderful, local flavour, hasn´t it? I could almost use it as a name for a cosy character :D
