Teaser Tuesday - Have His Carcase by Dorothy Sayers

is hosted by Should be Reading.

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  1. Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page.

  2. Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

  3. Also share the title of the book that the “teaser” comes from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given! Please avoid spoilers!

Five years seems a longish time to premeditate a crime. You might, perhaps, keep an eye on that bank - only don't make a row about it, or you may frighten the bird away.

~ p. 119, Have His Carcase, by Dorothy L. Sayers

Read my review of the preceding novel Strong Poison, here.

One of my favorites. I love the developing relationship between Harriet and Peter (and the way that Sayers prolongs it), and as a fan of Russian history I loved the allusions in this one.

That looks good! I've got a couple of good teasers this week. Here's a link.
