This week my teaser lines come from The Nightwalker, by Sebastian Fitzek. In this snippet (from Kindle Location 1118), young Leon Nader's father is telling his son a tale about the Ghosts of the Twelve Nights:
'They are the opposite of guardian angels. Misfortune befalls the houses they live in. And during these days they are on the search for new families.'
'Will they come to us, too?'
'Only if we use the washing machine.'
Haunted washing machines? And a ghost that would require me to STOP doing laundry? That doesn't sound like real misfortune, does it? Actually, it sounds like a pretty handy spirit to have around. Now if I could just find a ghost that would do the laundry FOR me — that would really be exciting!
