This week my teaser lines come from The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. In this snippet from page 48 we're in Washington DC, with a tour group visiting the Capitol Rotunda:
As the bald man hurried off, disappearing through the east portico, a little boy nearby could be heard saying, "Mommy, that man dropped something." The boy drifted toward the object but suddenly stopped short. After a long, motionless beat, he pointed and let out a deafening scream.In all my years of working in Washington, I never visited the Rotunda. But there were plenty of other things about DC that made me want to scream!
