It's Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesday 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 participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Great Mistake  by Mary Roberts Rinehart   pg. 38
'He started across the grass and I followed him. To my surprise the door was open and the lights were on. Still following the dog I went in, to find the night watchman, Evans lying face down beside the pool, unconscious and bleeding from a wound in the back of his head. And missing his trousers.'

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