DJ´s Bait in the Box # 86

This novel is the first in a still fairly short series:

“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.”

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.

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

Kelly sagde ...

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.
