This week, I'm almost half way through Counterfeit Conspiracies by Ritter Ames.
This is a fun caper as the main character is trying to track down a relic and everyone, it seems, is after her.
Here's how the book opens:
Clouds shrouded the moon. The Dobermans, Zeus and Apollo, snoozed by the rose bushes after devouring the tasty treat I had offered. Waves crashed in the distance and gave the crisp sea air a taste and smell of salt spray. The estate's showplace lawn ended a hundred yards away at a private beach.
I'm cheating a little on the 56 this week. You see, page 57 is the end of a chapter, and it ends like this:
"One last thing. Have you ever seen this person before?"
She took the phone and stared for a moment at the screen. Then she pointed toward the middle monitor. "You mean that man?"
I just couldn't pass up that ending for my second teaser.
Have a great weekend!
