Teaser Tuesday (November 5)

Teasing Tuesday CB

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My current read is Morning Frost by James Henry due to be published by Bantam Press on November 7, 2013
This is the third prequel written by James Henry to the brilliant original series by R.D. Wingfield.

Morning Frost


It’s been one of the worst days of Detective Sergeant Jack Frost’s life. He has buried his wife Mary, and must now endure the wake, attended by all of Denton’s finest.
All, that is, apart from DC Sue Clark, who spends the night pursuing a bogus tip-off, before being summoned to the discovery of a human hand. And things get worse. Local entrepreneur Harry Baskin is shot inside his nightclub, fake fivers are being circulated, and a famous painting goes missing.
As the week goes on, a cyclist is found dead in suspicious circumstances, and the more body parts appear. Frost is on the case, but another disaster – one he is entirely unprepared for – is about to strike . . . Goodreads

My Teaser:
Nev Sanderson pointed authoritatively with a large wooden stick. ‘That there is a foot.’
The dog continued to sniff the prominent big toe. Sanderson leaned on his stick and smirked.


A book lover who clearly has issues as obsessed with crime despite leading a respectable life

  1. Loved the TV series, but was never a fan of the books – mainly because the Jack in the books wasn’t quite as cuddly as David Jason. I’d probably have hated the TV series if I’d read the books first. I’ll be interested to hear what you think of the prequel…


    1. I’d read the books before the TV series but I love David Jason anyway so managed to enjoy that too (which is rare) I liked the first two that Henry James wrote, he’s managed to capture the flavour of R.D. Wingfield’s originals really well (although there was an unfortunate reference to Jimmy Saville in the second one)


  2. Well, I’m intrigued! I also didn’t know there was a tv series…and since I can’t say no to mysteries I will probably end up watching it. Great teaser 🙂


  3. Sounds like a good, suspenseful read. BTW, I think you’ve confused the author of this series JAMES HENRY with the 19th century novelist HENRY JAMES in your blurb. 😉
