As I know how difficult it is to get this crime novel in Europe and America, I don´t think it is fair to call this a bait post.
“The day it was ordained that Gabriella Knowes would die there were no harbingers, omens or owl´s calls. No tolling of bells. With the unquestioning courtesy of the well brought up, she invited death in.
Death politely showed his identification and explained that there had been a telecommunication problem in the area. He then requested Gaby check her household phone had a dial tone.”
Uncanny, isn´t it? This book has been on my wish list forever, and I finally held it in my hand the other day. The quotation is from New Zealand writer Vanda Symon´s debut, Overkill (2007).
I promise to review it soon, but I am a bit busy these days so I don´t know exactly when soon will be.
