You're right! That's the book I read all those years ago! I remembered the line but not the name!

Thanks so much!

Interesting. Thanks for answering. I've never read his stuff but I will investigate.

Any other offers, anyone?!

Don't know I'm afraid but if I had to guess I would say it sounded quite like Neil Gaiman.

'A kind of silence, if I may say, was walking through the house, and like most silences, it wasn't really silent at all.'

I believe it to be from 'In Cold Blood' by Truman Capote. My son disagrees. Can any of you settle the argument? I know it's a long shot.....
