This week my teaser lines come from Seduction, the latest novel by M.J. Rose. I haven't actually started the book yet, but it looks so tempting I might just have to drop all the other books I've got going and jump into this one. The quote comes from an advance uncorrected proof, so please remember that the finished copy may differ. Here's the snippet, from page 78:
"I know there's crime on the island," I said. "Fights, drunken brawls, thievery, but are there many unexplained crimes here? Have there been many murders?"
"She's a missing child, Monsieur Hugo, not a dead one."
But I had a feeling -- one I wished I didn't have -- that she was dead....I read Rose's The Hypnotist a few years ago, and really loved it. Hoping this one will be a great read, too.
