Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Just do the following:
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
4. 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!)
5. Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Peering through the darkness, Rick and Bert could see them pacing around in their compound – another ‘cage’ of strong, supple staves bound together by twine – about five yards from their own. The cats’ noses pointed skyward. Sniffing out the human scent. Slinking around their pen, one after the other, their powerful tails swinging low and threatening.
– page 231, No Sanctuary by Richard Laymon
I haven’t reached this part of the book yet (I’m only a few chapters in), but I just opened the book to this page.
Once again, I’ve cheated a teeny, tiny bit and this time posted the whole paragraph, rather than just two sentences, as without the last bit, it just seemed like a couple of domestic cats were prowling about – nowhere near as menacing as the cougars Laymon actually meant!
It’s been many years since I last read any Laymon, as I found his books kind of same-y after a while and felt I’d outgrown them a bit (I devoured them as a teen), but my sister loaned me this one as I mentioned I’d never read it…
