He hadn’t apologized. Why should he? He hadn’t done anything wrong. He couldn’t do anything wrong. Ever. But I was upset, for whatever reason, and he liked me, and so he would mollify me. He was a generous man. (pg. 8, Escapade by Walter Satterthwait)

This is a description of Houdini and it just struck me as really fitting, as least for Houdini as the character in this mystery. Whether or not he was like that in real life, I have no idea.

This book hasn’t really grabbed me yet, but I’m only on page 52. So far, there’s been no murder and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle hasn’t shown up yet.

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.

Purchase Escapade at Amazon.

Purchase Escapade at an Indie Bookstore.

I received my copy through PaperbackSwap and the above is my honest opinion. I am an Amazon and IndieBound affiliate.
