Sharing our love for authors, and the stories they are inspired to tell.

‘Bones To Ashes’ by Kathy Reichs

Be warned! My teaser lines this week, are not for anyone of a squeamish nature, however they are a true and realistic representation of forensics work.

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story and its author, simply click on the book image.

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.

With some effort, I created an opening approximately eight inches square. Using a small flashlight, I held my breath, leaned close, and peered into Genevieve’s abdomen. The internal organs had been reduced to a dark, viscous paste. I spotted not a single maggot, egg or puparial casing.

Observations: Outer tissue dehydration. Skeletal exposure. Visceral breakdown. Absence of fly and beetle activity. Deduction: Death had occurred the previous winter. Long enough back to account for tissue destruction, at a time when insects weren’t out and about. Genevieve Doucet had died months before her mother.

Paperback Edition – Page 40

This book was taken from my own personal library collection and was originally a charity shop purchase.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog articles I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by … Jenn at ‘A Daily Rhythm’

Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:

Grab your current read.

Open to a random page.

  1. Share a couple of  “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
  2. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences.
  3. Remember to share the title and author too.
  4. Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it and you can share other people’s.

It would be great if you then decided to leave a comment for Jenn, as we all like to receive them and are interested in sharing your thoughts.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
