This week my teaser lines come from A Saintly Killing, by Martha Ockley. It's the third book in her "Faith Morgan" mystery series centering on an Anglican priest who's also a former policewoman in Winchester, England. I haven't actually started reading this one, but it's on my list for March. In this snippet, Faith has come upon local artist Sal Hinkley, collapsed on the ground beside her easel:
There were several dark, bluish-red marks on Sal's slim neck. Faith stared at them, and for an odd moment she thought they might be paint. But the painting on the easel, the view of St James's Church, was a different palate entirely....Not yet twenty pages into the story, and already we've got a murder on our hands. So far, I like it.
Sal Hinkley had been strangled. (p.17)
