I rolled a granite boulder to the head of the grave. I knew how quickly green would cover the turned earth.

The question was like a wire drawn tight at ankle level: it brought her down with a bump.
A final teaser from Sarah Waters 'The Paying Guests' I'm now in the courtroom drama stage of the novel - maybe the different phases are rather taut and enjoyable! Here's my previous tease from the book.

From Peter Lihou's Rachel's Shoe our BATS (book group of the month) - rather too many names in those 2 sentences for a teaser. I wasn't impressed, it felt like teenage fiction (though I suppose there's nothing wrong with that) lots of derring do and a little predictable - having recently watched Edge of Darkness I preferred the rather similar denoument of the TV series.
