Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. You know the rules: grab your current read, open to a random page and share a two sentence teaser with us (no spoilers!). Be sure to tell us about the book, so we can add it to our TBR list!
This week, I’ve got a teaser from my new read, Defending Jacob. This one looks like it’s going to be great, even though I’m not very far along. I had to do some random page-turning to find a good teaser, but this would definitely tempt me — and anyone else who loves a good courtroom drama:
“Your Honor, the Commonwealth is seeking a very high bail: five hundred thousand cash, five million surety. The Commonwealth would argue that, because of the unusual circumstances of his family situation, this defendant poses a particular risk of flight in light of the savagery of the crime, the overwhelming likelihood of conviction and the unusual sophistication of this defendant, who has grown up in a home where criminal law is the family business.”
What is teasing YOU this week?
