Teaser Tuesdays: Shadow Ritual

This week my teaser lines come from Shadow Ritual, by Eric Giacometti and Jacques Ravenne (translated by Anne Trager). A thriller involving Freemasons and Nazis, it's a little outside my usual comfort zone. I'm reading this on the Kindle, so I'm not sure about page numbers, but this snippet is at Loc.541 of the e-book edition.
When he was younger, Bashir had been partial to throat slitting. Then one September night in Beirut, when he was executing a contract at a private party, a spurt of blood had stained his Armani suit -- a superb three piece he had bought in Rome.... He had used guns and rope ever since.
Okey-dokey. Like I said -- not exactly a comfy read. But it's had some really positive reviews, so I'm hoping I'll love it.

Oh, and you know, I bet a really good dry cleaner could have removed that bloodstain with no problems at all.

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.

And please feel free to leave me a link to your Teaser Tuesday post in your comment here.


  1. Don't think I'd want to meet up with Bashir. Hope you enjoy! Mine: Accused by Lisa Scottoline

  2. I like the nastiness of it all. I'm piqued.

  3. I'm seeing this book a lot and it's definitely one I want to read. Great choice for your teaser!

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

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
