DJ´s Bait in the Box # 92

Sore throat, sore eyes, head, chest … seems like the perfect day to revive my little game.

This American mystery is the first in a series. Meet the protagonist:

“From an early age, I had known exactly what I wanted to do with my life. I would join the police force and become a detective based at Area 4 headquarters, finding the bad guys, helping the victims. No one who died on the streets would be buried without a name or a story, not if I was working the case.”

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 when my head is up to it.

  1. Hope you’re feeling better soon. Sorry, I don’t recognise that book …

  2. I don’t know the book. But, I’m feeling a cold coming on, I hope you feel better soon.

  3. Jose Ignacio says:

    Is there a character whose name sounds familar in Spanish? Btw my brother in-law family name is Saenz.

  4. Margot Kinberg says:

    Dorte – Oh, I am so happy that Bait-in-the-Box is back! And a nice choice for this one, too. If I’m right, the title is blowing around in my brain somewhere… 😉

  5. Thank you, Margaret and Clarissa.

    Margot and José: you two are brilliant detectives. I have no idea how you do it.

  6. Norman says:

    Dorte, the answer is Margot and Jose Ignacio, and a few other FF members, have huge computer like brains, which is unfair on those of us who only have the abacus-like model.

  7. Kelly says:

    Ha! Add me to that abacus-like model of a brain (and I think it’s missing a few beads right now!). As usual I have no idea, but I LOVE that box!! Can you say what came in it without giving away information that would spoil the game?

    Sorry you’re feeling poorly and hope it’s just something seasonal that will soon pass.

  8. Norman: I am with you there. But please remember us, the common folks, when you make your next quiz 😉

    Kelly: I am a bit better tonight, but whether that is because I took some painkillers or if am really better…
    And I don´t really know what was in the box; I only have the picture. But when you see the book cover, you will realize how helpful I have tried to be 😉

  9. Belle Wong says:

    Hope you are feeling better tonight, and it’s not just the painkillers! I never do well with your Bait in the Box posts, but they’re always fun to read. As usual, I don’t have a clue about this one!

  10. Patti Abbott says:

    Margot knows everything! I am always astounded by her wealth of information. Feel better.

  12. Belle: not too well yet, but good for my TBR I suppose. I have read 3 books in 4 days, I think.

    Patti: thank you. A bit better, but not back to work yet.
    Margot´s knowledge & memory are baffling.

  13. Barbara says:

    OK, my bronchitis is practically gone. Now it’s your turn to get well. Feeling that way is such a bummer, but at least your brain is working. 🙂

  14. Barbara says:

    Wait, this quotation sounds strangely familiar . . .

    Norman, you are too funny. My brain will be clacking like an abacus from now on. And yes Saenz is a Spanish name, though I admit it’s not one that many Americans know is Spanish and common in northern Mexico.

  15. Barbara F: I thought you might recognize it. But I am not sure I would remember everything I had written a couple of years on.
