Teaser Tuesdays


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

*Grab your current read.Link*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 Swan Song by Edmund Crispin (p. 75):

It was not until they were properly under way that Adam recognised the force of that "with any luck." They would require a great deal of luck, he thought, sitting petrified in the front seat, if they were to get back at all. To realise that any one is not a very good driver takes a little time; the mind is not eager, in the face of a long journey, to embrace this particular verity; and it was not until Fen emerged into the High Street, with the velocity of a benighted traveller pursued by spectres, that Adam became really alarmed.

Wonderful teaser! It's been a really long time since I read any Crispin. Hope you're enjoying this one.

I haven't been reading anything lately because of the A-Z however, I do like this writer. He's very poetic.
