Here's mine:

Tuesday Intro

A bell called in the priests for prayer, drowning out the worst of the screams. Through wooden shutters I squinted at the vivid brightness, peering down at the men in green robes as they rushed across the paving stones of the courtyard. They surged towards the steps of an impressive temple, which was carved out of the rock-face, crowned with a triangular pediment and covered in ornate symbols. In their haste, one of the priests lost his sandal on the way and paused in the sultry heat to slip it on again. Even out here it seemed everyone was in a rush.

Teaser Tuesday

The senator led the way; Leana and I followed him inside.
In the centre of the temple, laid on the floor, was a woman's body covered in blood.

Loc 873 (16%), Drakenfeld by Mark Charan Newton
