Teaser Tuesday

It’s that time of week again, everyone, and time for the Tuesday Teaser.
Again the reminder of what this is all about. We are asked to:
  1. Grab your current read.
  2. Let the book fall open to a random page.
  3. Share two teaser sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  4. Share the title of the book that the “teaser” comes from, so people can find the book if they like the teaser.
  5. And again remember – avoid spoilers.
Here's mine ~

Lucy's eyes hardened. "I won't be sitting around twiddling my thumbs. I'm going to look for the killer. Her family, her assistant, XXXXXX. There are plenty of people with motive, so I need to move fast before alibis get created and people practice their stories on each other"

This teaser comes from
The Battered Body: A Supper Club Mystery by J.B. Stanley. What's YOUR teaser?

This one sounds good -- I'm glad I happened upon this site. OK, your site seems to be mostly mysteries (so I'll come back for mystery possibilities!)

I'm currently reading a memoir, about survival during World War II: Abandoned and Forgotten. The book covers 8 years of the author's childhood and emphasizes what war does to people and how it impacts the innocent civilian population. Very powerful.

This is from page 5:

"What we did not know at the time was that the Red Army had already broken through the German lines
and had surrounded our part of East Prussia in a pincer maneuver. They blocked all avenues to safety, thus condemning most of the East
Prussian population to an unfathomably cruel fate."
