Teaser Tuesday: They Found Him Dead by Georgette Heyer

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!

This week's teaser is from They Found Him Dead by Georgette Heyer. Book was reviewed here.

The mother of the main suspect has just returned from an African Safari and has met with the police.
Two detectives are discussing her as a possible suspect also. Here's the gist of their conversation.

"Energetic, determined woman, with a one-track mind and plenty of courage."
"She'd need to have hobnobbing with a lot of gorillas," remarked the inspector. "Generally you're safe to rule the women out when it's a case of shooting, but I dare say her ladyship wouldn't think twice about pulling a trigger."

Disclosure: A review copy of this book was provided by Sourcebooks, Inc. Thank you, Danielle.
