Today my teasers come from The Private Patient by P.D. James. Published last year, it's the latest entry in her Adam Dalgliesh mystery series, and this quote comes from page 177:
Dalgliesh said, "It's usually unwise to concentrate too early or too strongly on motive. People kill for a variety of reasons, some unacknowledged even by the killer."
Oh, Inspector – you say the pithiest things! Not sure, but I think Dalgliesh is having a little argument with one of his team members there. Now who would be so foolish as to contradict Adam Dalgliesh when it comes to crime investigation?
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or participate yourself, head on over to her blog. And these are the rules: 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!
