Teaser Tuesday: Darling Jim by Christian Moerk


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

  1. Grab your current read

  2. Open to a random page

  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

  4. 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!)

  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


My teaser today comes from page 6 of Darling Jim by Christian Moerk. Christian was the keynote speaker at the recent Central Coast Writer's Conference I attended, and at the end of the conference, I was able to get my newly purchased copy of his book signed to add to my ever-growing collection. I'm only 67 pages into this book, but already I'm totally caught up in the mystery, and can't wait to read what happens next!

Desmond finally ignored his imprecise feeling of foreboding, bent down, and pushed open the slot. He jammed one of the Tesco adverts inside. He noticed a pile of unopened mail on the floor.

And then he stopped.

Yes, I cheated yet again by including more than two sentences, but I hope it leaves you intrigued enough to hunt down a copy of this book for yourself! Cheers!
