TEASER TUESDAY: ‘Black Ice’

Welcome to another edition of TEASER TUESDAY!

Mom and I decided we don’t like the usual rules for Teaser Tuesday. You’re supposed to “grab your current read, open to a random page” and “share “two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page that are spoiler free.”

Too restrictive, we decided. (Well, it was mostly me. But Mom helped. A little. You know how Moms are.)

Anyway, some books/plots just don’t lend themselves to “two sentences.” Sometimes a really compelling thought or plot element can be conveyed in three words. Sometimes it takes three or four or five sentences for same. Sometimes several brief, pithy sentences can fill the bill. But they have to be strung together in context to make sense.

So we’re making up our own rules today. Basically, we’re adding some flexibility regarding the number of sentences used to convey an idea or plot element. We’re keeping the rest.

Ready? Great! Let’s move on to today’s TT feature: Black Ice, by Brad Thor.
