Teaser Tuesdays (Jan. 4)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted at Should Be Reading.

The objective is to open to a random page of your current reading and post two teaser sentences from anywhere on that page.

This week, I'm reading 'Dead Spy Running', a spy thriller by Jon Stock.

Suspended MI6 agent Daniel Marchant is running out of time. He's alongside a man strapped with explosives at the London Marathon. If they drop their speed the belt will detonate, killing all around them. But is Marchant secretly working for the terrorists?

Marchant's father, ex-Chief of MI6, was accused by the CIA of treachery. To prove his innocence, Marchant must take a perilous journey via Poland and India to unearth his father's dark past, test his own relationship with fellow spy Leila and challenge the heavy hand of America's war on terror. Most of all, he has to learn to trust no one.

My teaser: Her eyes rested on the picture of her and Marchant at the Fort. She walked over to the desk, knowing that she might never see him again. (pg 117)
