Teaser Tuesday - The Betrayal of Maggie Blair

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
The Betrayal of Maggie Blair"My hand already greasy with fish guts, slipped on the knife I was holding, and I almost cut myself. I strained to listen.
"Let's hope they are taking the fools away," grumbled the second man. " The way they drone on with their psalms gives me the creeps."
The Betrayal of Maggie Blair by Elizabeth Laird

Very interesting teaser. Heard of the author, but never read anything by her. The fish guts part is especially interesting.

This Week’s Teaser Tuesday: Something from the Nightside

Gutting fish while overhearing psalmists--annoying ones at that-is an intriguing situation that draws you in. Makes us want to know what happened to Maggie Blair.

My TT features a character who's had bad things happen to her as well. It's Swedish crime writer Camilla Lackberg's "The Ice Princess". Link: Summit Musings
