Tuesday Teaser - Jan. 26, 2010



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Here is how it works:
Grab your current read
Open to a random pageShare two (2 or 3) “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 others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!



My teaser this week comes from Sue Grafton's U is for Undertow (pg. 39):

Prior to immigrating, he was engaged in the manufacturing of inlet valves and flotation devices for toilets, and while he'd amassed a fortune, the source of his money ruled out acceptance in polite society. At a lawn party, really, how could one converse with a toilet valve magnate?
