Teaser Tuesday: September 14, 2010

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:


* Grab your current read


* Open to a random page


* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)


* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"On the plaza bench, a short, stocky man in his early seventies and wearing a gray fedora stopped reading his copy of the Chicago Tribune - - curiously out of place in Midtown Manhattan - - and calmly folded it as he watched the subject of his latest assignment climb into the car's backseat.  Ever eager for the center-stage spotlight, Ratkin remained oblivious to the one person who followed his every move."

~ p. 25, The Partnership by Steven J. Harper


PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog).


Happy Reading!

Interesting teaser. I'm not sure I would notice someone reading an out-of-place newspaper - I'd be just as oblivious at the Ratkin character.

Sounds like someone is about to take a dirt nap. ;P Great teaser! My TT from Paranormalcy is here.
