This week my teaser lines come from Vertigo (original title: D'entre les Morts), the classic French mystery novel by Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac (Pushkin Press, September 2015; originally published 1954). I read this one on my Kindle, so I'm not exactly sure about page numbers -- this snippet is taken from later in the novel, around Location 1430-40:
What he loved in her -- and it had been so all along -- was... that she wasn't quite real.... Only the eyes were perfect, only they were the absolute proof.
He would have liked to throw his arms round her, to embrace her; yes, perhaps to suffocate her.
Ah, yes. That is definitely real love, n'est-ce pas?
