>DJ´s Bait in the Box # 44

[This week´s beautiful and very appropriate bait box
belongs to Julia,
A Piece of my Mind]

Do you recognize this classic crime story?

“There had clearly been a terrific struggle. Heavy furniture was overturned. China vases lay splintered on the floor. In the middle of the hearthrug in front of the blazing fire lay Simeon in a great pool of blood. … Blood was splashed all round. The place was like a shambles.

There was a long shuddering sigh, and then two voices spoke in turn. Strangely enough, the words they uttered were both quotations.

David said: ´The mills of God grind slowly…´

Lydia´s voice came like a fluttering whisper: ´Who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?´

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.
