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’m reading The Meaning of Night: A Confession by Michael Cox. Lovely writing, a pleasure to read and a mystery that has me turning pages — and I need to turn the quickly, because there are almost 700 pages to get through!
In this case, our narrator is visiting with his new employer:
“‘The law, you know, can be a dreary business. A little harmless diversion is certainly required from time to time. As a corrective.'”
That seems perfectly reasonable…unless you know that he is talking about his collection of Victorian pornography!
What’s teasing YOU this week?
