(Review from the author)
it was amazing
bookshelves: my-own

I spent some time in America in the early 2000s, and during one fairly lengthy signing tour, I began to hear about the Washington shootings. Eventually, the police found the guys involved, and I began to think about whether I could incorporate that aspect of modern life in a book. But there was another short news item (while I was blearily lying back on an uncomfortable bed somewhere, flicking through channels and hitting CNN) about someone breaking into houses. Not hurting anyone, but breaking in and apparently observing people in their beds. It made me think: how would I react, if I found someone in my house, looking over my children? And that, really, was the start point of this book. A random news clip while I was thinking about two murderers on a killing spree.
