Teaser Tuesday July 12: Dominance by Will Lavender

Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:

* Grab your current read.
* Let the book fall open to a random page.
* Share with us two “teaser” sentences from that page.

You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your teaser from…that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

As always, please avoid spoilers!

Richard Aldiss’s eyes remained open, that permanent smile etched on his face. He appeared to be waiting for something. An answer, perhaps. A solution to the puzzles of the dead.

I cheated a little this week, but that means you get a four-sentence teaser for the price of a two-sentence teaser! Dominance looks to be a promising summer thriller. Two students murdered at a college in the early 1980s; the convicted literature professor teaching a special class (from his prison cell) in an attempt to clear his name in 1994; and a copycat crime taking place in the present day. A little lighter (perhaps not the best word) than the fare I’ve been reading lately, so it will be a nice change of pace.

What are you reading this week?
