Teaser Tuesday: In the Dark Places

This week my teaser lines come from In the Dark Places, Peter Robinson's 22nd Inspector Banks mystery novel, just out today from William Morrow publishers. (It was first published in the UK last year, with the title Abattoir Blues.) This snippet is from page 3, or location 110 of the Kindle version:
...he picked up that rank and coppery smell of blood. It was a smell he remembered well.
The thought came into his mind unbidden: someone has died here.
Well, we have possible mayhem almost from the very start of this one. I think it's definitely off to a promising start.

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. I like the description: "rank and coppery smell." I haven't read this series, but it sounds like one I'd enjoy.
    My Tuesday post features THE LAND OF MANGO SUNSETS.

  2. Yes, that is a very vivid description! I love a book that brings us right into the suspense.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “X: (KINSEY MILLHONE BOOK #24)”

  3. I really enjoy Peter Robinson's books--at least the small few I have read. He's one of those authors I keep meaning to read more by.


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.
