Teaser Tuesday! (3)
This is a weekly meme hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading. It is easy to join in, just follow these guidelines:
- 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!
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Page 283 – from the story The Beryl Coronet
“The name was indeed well known to us, as belonging to the senior partner in the second largest private banking concern in the City of London. What could have happened, then, to bring one of the foremost citizens of London to this most pitiable pass?”
I hope you enjoyed that! Please do leave a comment so I can go read your spoiler 🙂
