DJ´s Bait in the Box # 86
“It was as black in the closet as old blood. They had shoved me in and locked the door. I breathed heavily through my nose, fighting desperately to remain calm. I tried counting to ten on every intake of breath, and to eight as I released each one slowly into the darkness. Luckily for me, they had pulled the gag so tightly into my open mouth that my nostrils were left unobstructed, and I was able to draw in one slow lungful after another of the stale, musty air.”
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.

I love the box this week - reminds me of a set I had as a kid. No idea what the book is though :(
You could have covered so far the 2011 Crime Fiction Alphabet with the initials of the author .
Dorte - Yum! If I am right, this title is delicious and making me hungry! ;-)
Bernadette: I am glad you like the box - it is supposed to remind readers of the most common cover of the book.
Jose & Margot: between you, I think you have been very helpful!
No idea of the book, but it sounds grim! I like the box, too.
Maxine: these first sentences do sound grim, but the reader is in for a surprise ;D
I know this one!!! (and I've only read the first in the series)
Quite the precocious sleuth!
Kelly: precocious is a terrific clue. And I think your review was one of the two that convinced me I had to read this book.
