I don’t get to do Teaser Tuesday any more, nearly as much as I’d like to. (This darn business of earning a living!) But I decided to do one today, for the current read about a character I thought I’d never like: Jack Reacher, created by Lee Child.
You must know the drill by now, but just in case, you basically grab the book you’re reading at the moment, open to a more-or-less random page, and post two teaser sentences from that page. But no spoilers, for people who haven’t yet read the book.
I always try to be pretty scrupulous about the two-sentence rule myself. It’s challenging, and good discipline to boot.
Anyway, this book meme is hosted by MizB over at the Should Be Reading blog. So head over there, leave a link to your own teaser, and have a look at the teasers of other people. Meanwhile, here’s mine for today:
“…We investigate, we prepare, we execute. We find them, we take them down, and then we piss on their ancestors’ graves.”
Bad Luck and Trouble, page 110
Now, lest you think that sounds a bit unpleasant, the context is an urgent search, on the part of some former members of an elite army investigations team, for the people who appear to have murdered at least one of their former comrades. So you might forgive the lock-jawed intensity of the statement. (And I’m actually rather itching to finish so I can review the book, hee!)
Now head on over and discover other teasers!
