DJ´s Bait in the Box # 88 - win an e-book


This quotation comes from a brand-new collection of very short crime stories.

     When Toffee Brown moved to Knavesborough, no one noticed her the first few weeks. She could just as well have been a ghost. Perhaps she was? No, surely she would have noticed. She tried to poke a finger through her own body and wailed loudly. These country bumpkins just chose to ignore her! How inconsiderate! 

     She, however, noticed her neighbour in the adjacent house. The blind man in the wheelchair with the afghan coverlet and the blue-eyed cat constantly on his lap. She especially noticed that each time they passed each other on the pavement, the cat ignored her, while the man seemed to be following her with his eyes, but of course that was impossible. Toffee, you are losing it, she whispered to herself.


Can you guess who wrote it?

Send me an e-mail with the name of the writer before Sunday - among the correct answers I will draw one winner of the e-book version of this collection.

Dorte - If I'm right about this one (And I am not sure about this, mind ;-)) this Scandinavian writer is amazing! A bilingual blogger, a knowledgeable crime fiction fan and a talented writer and great friend. Yes, I'd call that amazing.

I wonder? Could it be a writer who has a real feel for what her readers enjoy? A writer who has me on the edge of my seat awaiting news of their latest stories. A writer who introduced me to The Herring Sellers Apprentice by any chance?

Margot and Tracy: ehm, as your judgment of this writer is fairly subjective, it is not easy to say yes or no.

I can tell you that she is ridiculously happy today because she has so many wonderful friends!
