‘Pigeon- Blood Red’ By Ed Duncan

So adept was Rico at his craft that he knew better than Evelyn herself that for a millisecond she had spotted him in the hotel lobby. He was equally confident that neither she nor the man had seen him between then and the time they entered the taxi on Kuhio Avenue. But he also knew that the one sighting had been enough to arouse their suspicion. They confirmed it with their hurried trek to the marketplace and hasty retreat. They might be anywhere now, but his guess was the hotel. He was reasonably certain the walk to the marketplace hadn’t been planned, so they’d probably return to the hotel if only to check out. And if not, he would still have to start his search for them there.

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'.

  • This is an interesting teaser, with lots of unanswered questions. I’m afraid I’m one of those who could easily be tailed. It always looks so obvious in the movies, but in real life I’m not sure I would notice. Maybe if I were paranoid or had real reason to believe I was being followed….

    I’m all set to begin a new book later today, so no teaser from me this time.

    • Hi Kelly,

      I must admit that I do tend to get a bit paranoid if someone walks too closely behind me and doesn’t seem to want to get past. I never really used to take too much notice, but I think that as I have got older, my fear and suspicion levels have increased. These days I am quite happy not to go into any very large cities, although common sense tells me that if something bad is going to happen, it could just as easily happen on the streets of one of my local market towns!

      I do think that I would probably notice if someone was tailing me, but whether I would have the common sense of the characters in the story, to shake off the tail, I really don’t know.

      I shall be interested to find out what your new book is 🙂

    • Hi Laura,

      I don’t think you will be disappointed if you decide to give ‘Pigeon – Blood Red’ a try. Whilst the plot isn’t overly complicated, there are plenty of twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting and the action is non-stop and fast-paced throughout.

      Thanks for taking the time to visit this time, I always appreciate your comments 🙂

  • Hmm, not a teaser that initially grabs me but then you can never really tell.

    About to start a new book, like Kelly I’m afraid I don’t have any teasers to share with you today.

    • Hi Tracy,

      I do agree that a few random teaser lines don’t always offer a true reflection of the book, when deciding whether to read or not, especially if they aren’t really a pivotal part of the storyline at the time.

      However, almost everyone I know, or whom I observe when they visit the shop with a view to purchasing a book, will first check out the synopsis, then turn to the first ‘proper’ page of the book and read the first couple of paragraphs, maybe then going on to peruse a similar length section about mid-way through the book (not something I usually do myself I hasten to add).

      So sharing those ‘Teaser Lines’ really is quite important and of value, although they are not something you generally get the luxury of reading if you are purchasing a download. Amazon seems to have cracked that dilemma to a point, by making ‘Surprise Me’ lines, available for some of its books, for reading on-line!

      I shall look forward to checking out which book you decide to read next and thanks for stopping by 🙂
