Teaser Tuesday

• Grab your current read.
• Let the book fall open to a random page.
• Share with us two "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
• You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from. That way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Please avoid spoilers!

(Book 4: The Part About the Crimes) by
Roberto Bolaño
Page 427 - Two Santa Theresa patrol cars drove up, the police knocked, Llanos came to the door, the police beat him to the ground without a word, handcuffed him, and took him to the station, where they tried to stick him with the murder of the woman on Calle Alondra, or at least of the girl they'd found at the new city dump, but it wouldn't work, Silvana Pérez himself was his alibi, since he'd been with her on the dates in question, strutting around Colonia Carranza's ramshackle park, where there'd been a carnival, and even Silvana's relatives had seen the two of them together. As far as nights were concerned, until barely a week ago he's spent them on the night shift at the maquiladora and his fellow workers could vouch for him.

An American Tragedy by Thomas Dreiser
Page 503 - What a horrible plan! And yet how else?

Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
Page 59 - But way after a while he died. Lum found him under the big tree on his rawbony back with all four feet in the air.
