Teaser Tuesday: Strong Poison

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “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 other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers

Strong Poison

“It would be natural for you to think that this proposal of marriage takes away any suggestion that the prisoner had a cause of grievance against Boyes. Anyone would say that, under such circumstances, she could have no motive for wishing to murder this young man, but rather the contrary”  (7).

From Strong Poison by Dorothy L. Sayers

Rikki said...

Oh, interesting. I have read all Peter Wimsey books and unfortunately Strong Poison is my least favourite one. Even though the solution to the mystery is quite clever.
Have you read any others or is this your first one? If yes, what is your favourite?

Zee said...

Nymeth~~I am enjoying it

Rikki~~this is my first one. I haven't finished it yet so I'll have to look out for the solution :D It is all Nymeth's fault that I'm reading it in the first place :D
