Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!
Here's my teaser for today:


When Caffery arrived at the mortuary the remains of Lucy Mahoney were already on the central table, the lights powering down on her, the huge fans in the floor and ceiling roaring, sucking air in from the outside and drawing away the foul smell. The brown-smeared sheet she'd been wrapped in lay open on another table.




(Pg 58, Skin by Mo Hayder)

    I don't know if it's because of the cover of the feeling of the quote but it sounds like they're in a crematorium? Creepy...

  13. Ladybug Says:

    Melody: Can you recommend me a Mo Hayder book? It's hard to know which to choose first :)


  14. Melody Says:

    Ladybug - Sure I can, with pleasure! :D I always recommend Tokyo (aka The Devil of Nanking because that's my favourite book by Mo Hayder thus far! That's a stand-alone book so you don't feel you'd miss anything unlike her Jack Caffery series. ;)
