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 The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Holmes by Loren D. Estleman (p. 44):

"Blimey!" exclaimed the other, secreting the coin in his coat pocket. "For 'arf a crown I'd kidnap the Tsar of Rooshia single-handed."

Funny idea! I'm working my way through the real Sherlock Holmes books -- maybe I'll branch out to the sequels.
