New book, written by a British writer.
My questions always refer to
did you know this expression?
is it a common word in your country, region?
Please, do not add a dictionary entry
A new child has been abducted.
The pub was where they'd bickered and clutched at straws.......Less than a hundred yards away was Sunset Lodge, where four people had died while the police had dithered.
bickered...maybe discussed the matter? made guesses?
dithered...taken their time, been too slow?
I am just guessing, have not heard these words before.
