Teaser Tuesday (June 3)

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

their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

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

My Teaser this week is from The Kill by Jane Casey, the fifth outing for the intrepid Maeve Kerrigan.

The Kill


Maeve Kerrigan is used to investigating murders. But this time a killer has struck far too close to home…
When a police officer is found shot dead in his car, DC Maeve Kerrigan and DI Josh Derwent take on the investigation. But nothing about the case prepares them for what happens next: a second policeman dies . . . and then another . . .
The Metropolitan Police struggle to carry out their usual duties, but no one knows where or how this cop killer will strike again. While London disintegrates into lawlessness Maeve’s world starts to fall apart too. For if the police can’t keep themselves safe, how can they protect anyone else? Goodreads

My Teaser

She couldn’t shake the unworthy thought that she’d missed The X Factor for this. Bloody Ruby would have watched it, hours ago, curled up on the sofa in their flat.

Ruby who’d suggested she was only going out looking for badgers with Hugh because she’d fancied him.

I’m enjoying this book, as expected.  One of the joys of reading this series is that you know that each episode is going to have the same great characters, a superb plot and highs and lows aplenty for Maeve.

Please share the link to your teasers, or any other comments you have on this book, in the comments section below.

  1. Cleo – Oh, I like this series very much. And you picked a nicely enticing bit to share with us! Thanks 🙂


      1. I only did once. That was because it was racist and abusive to another commenter on my blog. I then removed that one and consigned him to the spam bucket


  2. That’s the second time today one of my posts has vanished as soon as I have done it. Both for Teaser Tuesday as well 😦 Might be because I have a link in it
