Teaser Tuesday

• Grab your current read.
• Let the book fall open to a random page.
• Share with us two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
• 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!

Low Life: Lures and Snares of Old New York by Luc Sante
Page 158 - In addition to this, there were a variety of trimmed and marked cards and cards manufactured in such a way that any two could be made to stick together. What is remarkable is that these devices were all sold very openly, advertised in newspapers as "advantage tools," and in at least one case carried on the shelves of a specialized shop around the corner from the Bowery, so that any gambler not straight from the woods would know that the chances of his being swindled were overwhelming.
