Teaser Tuesday – September 13, 2022

tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. Here are the rules if you want to play along:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week’s teaser comes from Lock Every Door by Riley Sager. Yes, this is a complete departure from my planned TBR for September. There are very specific reasons for that, the most important being that this is just a really good book and I enjoy it. More to come on that.

Light slices the darkness, jerking me awake.

My right eye — someone’s prying it open. Latex-gloved fingers part the lids, yanking on them like they’re stubborn window shades. There’s more light now. Harsh. Painfully bright. A penlight, aimed at my pupil.

The same is done to my left eye. Pry. Part. Light.

The fingers release my lids, and I’m plunged back into darkness.

Someone speaks. A man with a gentle voice. “Can you hear me?”

This one starts off with a bang, doesn’t it! You have to find out what happened to this person!

No Top Ten Tuesday this week – my time is a bit limited, but I wanted to at least get a teaser out there.

Please leave your teasers in comments!
