This week my teaser lines come from one of Hazel Holt's Mrs. Malory mysteries, No Cure For Death. I really love this series of cozies, and I'm trying to finish it up this year. Don't know what I'll do with no more Mrs. Malories to read -- start over from the beginning, I guess!
Anyway, this snippet is from page 109 of the American paperback edition:
Was John Morrison a good man? I wondered as I made myself a cup of tea when I got home. He was brilliant -- everyone agreed about that -- but good?... I wished I'd known him, properly as a person, not just casually as a doctor, so that I could know what he was really like and understand why someone hated him enough to kill him.I know that sounds like a bit of a spoiler, but (as in all the Mrs. Malory tales) we know pretty much from the beginning who the victim is going to be. And all the violence happens off-stage in these books, which is one of the things I love about them.
