>DJ´s Bait in the Box # 70

>

From Wales to Sydney to …. can you guess who and where? To help you, I can tell you the book is the first in the series.

“He was often described as a short-arsed man. He had a peculiar build, like a lightweight wrestler with a stoop. When he walked, it was as if his bottom half was doing its best to keep up with his top half. His hair, clipped short, was a dazzling white. …

He´d never had much success with whiskers, unless you counted eyebrows as whiskers. His had become so overgrown, it took strangers a while to make out his peculiar eyes. Even those who´d travelled ten times around the world had never seen such eyes. They were the bright green of well-lighted snooker-table felt, and they never failed to amuse him when they stared back from his mirror.”

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.
