“Dr Glendenning, the tall, white-haired pathologist, had finished shaking limbs and inserting his thermometer in orifices; now he stood, cigarette dangling from the corner of his mouth, muttering about what a warm night it had been as he made calculations in his little red notebook.”
“Even the young photographer, Peter Darby, as he snapped the body from every conceivable angle, said that normally on such a day he would be out photographing Rawley Force at a slow shutter speed, or zooming in on petals with his macro lens, praying that a bee or a butterfly would remain still for as long as it took to focus and shoot.”

Oops! Having recently read and reviewed later books in Peter Robinson’s series featuring his character Chief Inspector Alan Banks, I now find myself back to book two in the series, (I really must get my TBR pile a bit more organised!). Luckily for me, the other later volumes have come out well as stand-alone stories, so I am just hoping that is the case with the earlier titles.
is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of ‘Should Be Reading’.
Anyone can play along!
Just do the following:
1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
4. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences, that give away too much about the book.
5. Remember to share the title and author too.
6. Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it.
Don’t forget that MizB and all the participants of the meme, love to receive your comments and thoughts, so please take the time to leave a comment after linking.
I hope you all have some great lines to share with me this week.
