Teaser Tuesday #27

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Should Be Reading where we book bloggers give you lovely readers a tantalizing taste of whatever it is we are reading right now. To play along:
•  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!

This week's teaser is:
The Watchers
Jon Steele
Genre: Mystery, Thriller
"The sound of striking a match crackled over the line, then a wheezing draw. Harper listened to Gabriel's labored breathing."
pg. 308

 I'm really enjoying this one! Not quite as creepy or thrilling as I was expecting, but the characters and their lives are just wonderful. My favorite has to be Rochat, a kind of Quasimodo belfry keeper at the local cathedral. The characterizations are really well done and you get the distinct tone and personality of each very clearly through Steele's narrative. I think this one is going to end up on my favorites list. :-)

What's your teaser this week?
