Teaser Tuesday 7/19/11

It's time for Teaser Tuesday, where I post two sentences from a book I'm reading to whet your appetite and see if it's a book you might be interested in reading.

"She knew what people said--that there were bodies buried all over the state, men who'd met their bloody end at Stella's hands. The truth was that despite beating, interrogating, threatening, and torturing her parolees; despite leaving them with scars, broken bones, burns, post-traumatic stress disorder, even the occasional missing limb--despite all of this, she hadn't killed a single parolee, no matter how blackhearted and irredeemable he was."

This is a Kindle e-book, so I don't have a page number; 33% of the way through. "A Bad Day for Sorry: A Crime Novel," by Sophie Littlefield.

This one's pretty funny!


  1. I like the title of that book.

    Have you noticed that you can see page numbers with some Kindle books but not with others?

  2. Yes, it certainly is a good title.

    Thanks for sharing.
