This excerpt is from page 9 of the ARC, and it's our first sighting of the book's (and series') main character, FBI profiler Maggie O'Dell. She's just returning home after taking part in an FBI search in which the "perpetrator" they were looking for was shot and killed. And, yes (once again) it's a little more than two lines (you knew it would be, right?):
Maggie O'Dell peeled off her blouse without undoing the buttons, popping one before it came off. Didn't matter. The blouse was a goner. Even the best cleaners couldn't take out this much blood.Hmmmm. This is the first Maggie O'Dell book I've read, and so far I'm enjoying it a lot. But I can see it's going to be one of those books you really don't wanna read on your lunch break.
How about you? Got a great teaser from a book you're reading right now? Want to play along? Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by mizB at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.
