Teaser Tuesday (9)Every Dead Thing by John Connolly
Hailed internationally as a page-turner in a league with the fiction of Thomas Harris, this lyrical and terrifying bestseller is the stunning achievement of an "extravagantly gifted" (Kirkus Reviews) new novelist. John Connolly superbly taps into the tortured mind and gritty world of former NYPD detective Charlie "Bird" Parker, tormented by the brutal, unsolved murders of his wife and young daughter. Driven by visions of the dead, Parker tracks a serial killer from New York City to the American South, and finds his buried instincts -- for love, survival, and, ultimately, for killing -- awakening as he confronts a monster beyond imagining...
*TEASER* "Why did you shoot him?"
"You weren't around," I replied, my teeth gritted in pain. "If you'd been here I'd have shot you instead." -Every Dead Thing by John Connolly, pg. 21Some of you may have seen me post this quote on facebook or twitter yesterday, but I thought it would be an awesome teaser tuesday post since I haven't done one in a few weeks. College has been kicking my butt and I had been reading the same book for over a month. I finally got to finish and am now starting Every Dead Thing by John Connolly in hopes to finish it for the 18th. John Connolly is on a book tour and is coming here and am excited to get to go to another one of his events. A lot of you may already know that I have met him 3 times and absolutely love talking to him. I'm really excited and am looking forward to reading more of this book, that quote was a good indication that I will love it. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my teaser!
