[This cute box belongs to Kelly, Kelly´s Thoughts and Ramblings]
I have no idea how many of my readers know this British writer – but let´s see.
“She was wearing a sleeveless body warmer over a shirt. The ghastly weapon sticking out from her front coalesced as I stared at it, horrifying me all over again when I finally understood what it was. Grey, with a neatly shaped head at its end, I finally identified it as a knitting needle. A slender 2.5 mm knitting needle, which must have been pushed with great force through Gaynor´s ribcage. Pointed they might be, but certainly not sharp enough to kill a person easily.”
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.
Love this bait box! So cute.
A knitting needle makes a great weapon! Wish I'd thought of that...
Dorte - I wish I knew this one. It sounds familiar, but I can't place it...
What a cute box, so fairy tale like.
Well this is one British reader who does not have a clue.
Glad to see you back with Bait in the Box.
Wish I knew this one.
Cosy box for a cosy mystery I presume.
Elizabeth: yes, it is a bit unusual, isn´t it?
Margot: I have no idea how well-known the writer is.
Tracy: yes, Kelly sent me some great pictures.
Jose: I am glad you have noticed my helpful little hint.
All your readers are much more well versed in the crime lit than I am - and this one doesn't ring a bell at all, and I think I would've remembered that knitting needle thing.
Eww.. a painful murder weapon! Looking forward to see if I know the author.
Louise: yes, it is such an unusual weapon that one should remember it.
Kelly: but at least it is a beautiful box - thanks to you.
