>A Holiday Bait in a Pill Box

>For my holidays, I am only going to bring one book. A crime novel about someone who walks along the beach and comes across a body.

WHO could have written that?
Please leave your suggestions of authors and titles (there must be several) while I am away gallivanting in Scotland. I hope I will be able to modify your comments now and then.

NB: I do hope they have some good book shops in Edinburgh. If not, my ten holidays may seem very long.

    >Well, we have Waterstones and Blackwells and Borders, and a few independants, but what we do have is a lot of good second-hand bookshops (and charity shops with a good selection of books).

    >You'll be in Scotland? I live in Edinburgh, if you'd like to meet, and I promise I'm not an axe murderer! (I will be away Friday-Monday, though.) I can be reached via e-mail at the somewhat deceptive australienne at gmail etc.Otherwise, have fun! And for your information, Edinburgh has an excellent children's bookshop http://www.fidrabooks.com/bookshop/index.shtml as well as the usual chains (Blackwells and Waterstones) plus some second-hand bookshops on West Port in the Old Town.
