I’m locked in the cool room! The door won’t move. How did that happen? I never forget to put the bolt up. Never! I must think. Who’s left in the house? Who will miss me? Who will hear me?
Just quote a couple of spoiler-free sentences the book you’re reading to tempt other readers.
Here is mine:-
“His moustache was thicker than ever, so stiff a fly could have strolled out to the end, like a prisoner walking the plank on a pirate ship. Except that flies can’t survive in a cold room and thirty below zero, and neither could the owner of the blond frozen moustache: Nestor Chaffino, chef and pastry cook, renowned for his masterful way with a chocolate fondant.”
It might sound as if I’ve giving away the plot, but I’m not really, because those are the first two sentences of the book!
