My teasers this week are from The Way Through the Woods, one of the Inspector Morse mysteries by Colin Dexter. I'm just getting started on the book, so I'm not sure exactly how this ties in, but I know it's Sergeant Lewis being questioned by the chief inspector, about Morse (from page 59):
'You know Morse better than most.'
'Nobody knows him all that well.'
'You've got a reasonable idea how his mind works though.'
'He's got a strange sort of mind—'
'Not many'd disagree with you.'
'He's good at some things.'
'He's not bad at catching murderers for a start.'
OK, I know that's more than two lines, but I just had to include the whole exchange. It says a lot about Morse, and about Sergeant Lewis, too. This is the first "Morse" I've read in many years, so I'm looking forward to getting reacquainted with the cranky Inspector and his loyal sidekick Lewis.
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!
