“Slip of the Knife” by Denis Mina

” Paddy took a crouching step from her arm chair to the television , pressed the button for STV and sat back down. The adverts were still on. Dubb’s long, skinny body was draped across the length of the settee and he smiled a slow, warm grin.” (Page 32)




teasertuesdays31Teaser 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!
