As usual, I've got several books going at the moment, and one of them is The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters. I put it aside to read other things for a couple of weeks, but now I've taken it up again. This teaser comes from page 90 of the e-book version (I'm reading it on my iPad):
The two men sprang forward, one of them catching his foot on a loose seam of carpet and almost falling. A glass was set hurriedly down on the mantelpiece and went crashing into the hearth. The little girl was hidden from me for a moment by a confusion of bodies: I looked and saw only her bare arm and hand, with blood running down it.This bit is a little farther along than I've read, so I'm not sure what's going on. Or who the little girl is. Or where the blood came from. But I'm really enjoying this one so far.
