Teaser Tuesdays: A Saintly Killing

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....
Sal Hinkley had been strangled. (p.17)
Not yet twenty pages into the story, and already we've got a murder on our hands. So far, I like it.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.

  1. Interesting. Gotta love a book that starts out with a good murder. Here is my TT http://www.readinggrrl.com/2015/03/teaser-tuesday_10.html

  2. What she ^^ said, vivid opening lines. I like books that open in the middle of the action.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.
