Teaser Tuesday (December 2)


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 teaser this week is from Dead Souls by Elsebeth Egholm

Dead Souls


On All Hallows’ Eve, ex-convict Peter Boutrup is visiting his best friend’s grave when her estranged mother appears. Her son, Magnus, has disappeared, and she begs Peter to look for him.
The next day a young nun is pulled out of the moat at the convent in Djursland. She has been garrotted and Peter, who works there as a carpenter, was the last person to see her alive. Meanwhile, diver Kir Røjel finds an old box resting on the seabed. Inside are human bones. They are sixty years old, but the victim had also been garrotted.
While Peter is looking for Magnus, Detective Mark Bille Hansen is assigned to the case. He is determined to link the bones in the box with the girl in the moat – but the hunt for the truth leads both he and Peter down a path so dark, they fear they may never return. Bookbridgr

‘No,’ she said, her voice laden with irony. ‘She hasn’t eloped with the gardener, she hasn’t gone clubbing or joined a travelling circus, nor is she offering kisses for ten kroner on the high street because she’s getting married in the morning. She’s gone. Disappeared.’
‘Since last night, did you say, Sister Dolores?’

  1. Oh, this sounds really intriguing, Cleo! You chose a great teaser, and the book sounds good. I’ll be keen to read your review of it.


  2. I like the blurb and I like the cover. I fancy this one! I’m currently engrossed in Chain of Events by Fredrick T. Olsson.

    Connors didn’t answer. Just looked at his watch. When he looked up again, it was clear the decision had been made.

    I am loving this dark book.
