Teaser Tuesdays: Night Watch

This week, my teaser lines come from Linda Fairstein's new mystery novel, Night Watch. This snippet is from the opening paragraphs of the book, and I'm taking them from an advance reading copy, so please be aware they might be different in the published version (due out July 10th):
Bones. Human bones the length of a man’s thigh. I stopped short at the sight of more than a dozen of them stacked like a cord of firewood just steps in front of me.

I paused to catch my breath before heaving my shoulder against the thick wooden door for the third time.
This is one of Fairstein's Alexandra Cooper mysteries, and it's the first book I've read from that series. I'm only a few chapters into it, but so far it's holding my interest. Still haven't really found out much about those bones, though.

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.

And please feel free to leave me a link to your Teaser Tuesday post in your comment here.


  1. Sounds good...I'd like to learn more about those bones as well. Here is my TT http://newpaperadventures.blogspot.com/2012/06/teaser-tuesday-june-26.html

  2. That would be a very startling sight. I must be on a "dark" kick this week. My teasers are from Dark Companion by Marta Acosta and Darkness All Around by Doug Magee. Happy reading!

  3. Sounds a bit creepy, yet intriguing at the same time. I hope you enjoy the rest of the book! Mine: The Lightning Thief

  4. At least they're...*neatly* stacked. I tell you, I can't abide a sloppy pile of bones.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
