Tuesday Intros & Teaser Tuesday
Bibliophile by the Sea all you have to do is post the first paragraph of the first chapter of the book you are reading or are going to read.
And to take part in Teaser Tuesday hosted by Should Be Reading is turn to a random page in the book you are reading and share 2 "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page. Being careful not to include any spoilers of course.
Here are mine:
(This is actually from what is titled the Introduction of this book)
It is sixty years since I first met Sidney Grice. He was still quite young - though he did not seem it at the time - and already well known in England. But he had yet to achieve the international fame that a series of hilariously inaccurate Hollywood films was to bring upon him.
"I never forget anything," he said, slipping his coat on, "least of all conditions, and I shall take you to any meetings that may be conducted during this investigation. But I am going now to the mortuary, hardly a place fit for the entertainment of a young lady."
Loc 448, The Mangle Street Murders by M. R. C. Kasasian
This book counts towards my total for the New Author Challenge 2014 hosted by Literary Escaism
