Teaser Tuesday: The Lost Symbol

This week my teaser lines come from The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown.  In this snippet from page 48 we're in Washington DC, with a tour group visiting the Capitol Rotunda:
As the bald man hurried off, disappearing through the east portico, a little boy nearby could be heard saying, "Mommy, that man dropped something." The boy drifted toward the object but suddenly stopped short.  After a long, motionless beat, he pointed and let out a deafening scream.
In all my years of working in Washington, I never visited the Rotunda.  But there were plenty of other things about DC that made me want to scream!

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by mizB at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.

  7. I borrowed this one from my sister last year and still haven't got round to reading it. Must make an effort to do so this year. BTW, I have been to the Capitol and rotunda--well worth the visit! my teaser
