I fear that this fairly new, overseas crime novel may be unguessable for many of you, but I don´t have time to read an extra book this week so here we go. A little help: this writer is new to me.
“… a small yellow package, lying on the ground about ten yards inside the woods.
Lucky tried to focus; the bundle shifted, and cried out.
She pushed her way through the undergrowth, heedless of branches reaching for her face and scratching at her bare arms. She dropped to her knees, pushing a sharp stone into her flesh. She shifted to get off the rock, and shone her light into the folds of the yellow blanket. A scrunched-up white face blinked back at her, trying to shut out the sudden brightness. Tiny fists waved in the air.”
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 as usual.
