Teaser Tuesday: Dead Pan by Gayle Trent


It's Tuesday, Where are you ? is hosted Raider girl3
I am in bed peacefully snoozing when a shrill noise wakes me up. Is it the oven timer? No! Who the heck is calling at this miserable hour? It 's my friend Ben telling me to turn on the t.v. to channel 2 right away. It's coming up after the break, he says.


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading and asks you to :
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page 3
. Share 2 "teaser"sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser.
4. Please avoid spoilers!

"I have no idea what "it"is; but unless a meteorite fell on the Save-A-Buck during the middle of the night or confectioner's sugar has been deemed an illegal substance, I'm not sure I care. I could suddenly see myself in a black trench coat meeting a seedy-looking character in a dark alley to buy a ten-pound bag of confectioner's sugar, dampening my ring finger and tasting the sugar to make sure it was "pure" before handing over the money."

Mental note: Lay off the cop shows.

Today's teaser is from Dead Pan by Gayle Trent. To read a Q&A with Gayle and enter the contest for this fun cozy, see here. Deadline is December 22nd and is open internationally.* See rules.
