Teaser Tuesdays - May 18

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!

Ok, so I almost forgot it was Tuesday today, but the day is not yet over, so I still have time to post this.

'The Guardians' by Jack Cavanaugh (sort of the final book in the American Family Portrait series, except that he calls it a stand alone)

'Death had no good reason being out on a night like this. It was September warm. The Santa Ana wind had scrubbed the sky clean. The harvest moon cast a soft light. It was a perfect evening for a carefree stroll. Not a killing night at all.

From the backseat of a patrol car, through the wire mesh screen, Detective Ethan Morgan saw two things that didn't belong together - his house and a crime scene.'

In some ways I'm enjoying this final book the best. I've struggled to get through the series, but this one has a lot more action in it. One thing though, the name of Ethan Morgan's father - if he is the Vietnam soldier from 'The Peacemakers' then the name is wrong. Otherwise he has to be a cousin, and that doesn't fit with the men selected to hold the Morgan Family Bible. Just a slight delemma I have.
