Teaser Tuesdays - 1 Feb 2011

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!

Pursuit of Justice by DiAnn Mills

'A sharp bang startled her. A blowout. Bella lifted her foot from the gas pedal and gripped the steering wheel while maneuvering the car to the right side of the roaad. The left rear wheel bumped metal to the pavement as the car slowed to a stop, and she turned off the engine.
"Someone just shot out your tire." Vic pulled his weapon from his pocket.
Another bang leveled the front left tire. "A rifle." She leaned toward the right side of the car and retrieved the Glock 26 from her ankle holster. She lowered her windows and strained to her ears, listening for more rifle fire. Only the quiet sounds of birds and insects met her.'

I'm enjoying what I've read so far in this book, however I do have to point out a mistake. Right at the bottom of page 39 a particular type of dog is mentioned. In the book they are called 'Australian cow dogs'. The correct term is 'Australian cattle dogs'.
