This week my teaser lines come from Henry Farrell's classic thriller/horror novel, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? -- the book that served as inspiration for another classic, the 1962 movie starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. This snippet is from the first paragraph of Chapter 11 (p.132 of the paperback edition) -- sorry it's a little more than two sentences:
Jane awoke in darkness, her heart pounding. All around her was a threat of something, a terrible, encircling danger. Her head throbbed, and there was a bad taste in her mouth. She reached out in a frightened, tentative effort to determine where she was. Her hand touched a warm softness....And I'm not telling what that warm softness turns out to be. You'll just have to read the book if you want to know more.
