Teaser Tuesdays

MizB of Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Anyone can play along. Just do the following:

*Grab your current read.*Open to a random page.
*Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
*BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! You don't want to ruin the book for others.
*Share the title and author too, so other TT participants can add it to their TBR lists if they like your teaser.

Here's mine from Death of an Old Girl by Elizabeth Lemarchand (p. 108-9):

"These middle-class murders mean a hell of a lot of work," he [the Chief Superintendent] remarked.
"Sir?" replied Pollard, accepting the gambit.

{I couldn't just leave it with that...}

"The nobs," pronounced Crowe, "are news. Thanks to the press their lives are an open book.  In the working-classes the neighbours know everything, and a bit more.  The middle-classes are much better at covering their tracks. They're reticent, and expert at not attracting attention, all tucked  away in their detached homes with a nice bit of garden.  You have to dig.  Jolly deep, sometimes."
