Now wide-eyed and fully awake, Crispin measured his predicament. Dead of night, floating in the Thames, and bound.
(pg. 96, Veil of Lies by Jeri Westerson)
I’m about halfway through this mystery and really enjoying it. It’s a dark, gritty version of 14th century England, not romanticized. I can’t really say if it’s historically accurate, but it’s very readable.
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Play along. The rules are easy and I only cheated a little. Grab your current read, open to a random page, and give us two teaser sentences. Remember, no spoilers.
I borrowed my copy from the library and the above is my honest opinion. I am an Amazon associate.
Yikes!! That’s a predicament all right!
Here’s my teaser!!
That sounds great! And I am glad I found your blog.
I have a two-fer teaser on Rose City Reader today. From two completely different books.
Perhaps too gritty for my mystery taste, can’t say. Good teaser anyway
Veil of Lies is being added to my TBR list. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/09/teaser-tuesdays-what-alice-knew-a-most-curious-tale-of-henry-james-and-jack-the-ripper.html
That’s certainly a situation for Crispin! I wonder how he gets out of it. Great teaser!
My sentences are from Foundation and Empire by Isaac Asimov.
