DJ´s Bait in the Box # 68

This novel is the first in a series, and the writer is new to me, but hopefully some of you will recognize the quotation.

“My heart drops into my stomach when I notice more blood on her abdomen, just above her navel. Obscured within the dark smear is something I´ve seen before. Something I still see in my nightmares. 

´What about that?´

´Good God.´ The doctor´s voice quivers. ´It looks like something carved into her flesh.´

´Hard to make out what it is.´ But in that instant I´m certain we both know. Neither of us wants to say it aloud. 

The doc leans closer, so that his face is less than a foot from the wound. ´Looks like two Xs and three Is.´”

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.

Dorte - If I'm right, then I can't tell you the title of this; I'm sworn not to ; ).

Margot: LOL

Good that you are not away on a holiday; things are rather quiet right now.

Have not read the book but my best guess is that it happens in a small town within a close community.

I would offer the answer, but I must remain silent.

Well, I have no idea. I do love the box you used, though!

Dorte H sagde ...

Kelly, the box was meant as a clue to the envirinment. - and tomorrow all secrets (or at least one of them) will be revealed).
