Excerpt from Wanted

Of course, after I posted my teaser, I got notice from Amazon that Tattooed Teardrops is now up and available for purchase! Follow the link!

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

Good grief, Tuesday already? I couldn’t believe it when my reminder went off. I am in the midst of Wanted by Nick Stephenson, a thriller that I saw advertised as being similar to Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code. While the characters and tone are similar to Dan Brown, I’m not yet seeing plot twists similar to Dan Brown’s writing, and I’m 56% of the way through.

Here is my teaser:

“Shh, shh, don’t try to move,” said Reiniger. “I just severed your femoral artery. You will lose blood fast, and then pass out. I promise you won’t feel a thing.”

Nick Stephenson, Wanted

What should have been a relaxing vacation in Paris turns into another unwinnable situation for expert criminology consultant Leopold Blake. Caught in the cross hairs of a ruthless assassin and on the run from the police for a murder he didn’t commit, Blake and his team must fight to clear his name before it’s too late. 

As enemies close in from all sides, Blake is about to learn who he can trust – and who is determined to destroy him – as The City of Light becomes a new hunting ground.Wanted is another exhilarating instalment in the Leopold Blake series of thrillers, which can be read and enjoyed in any order.

  1. This sounds interesting! I don’t think I’d be able to be calm is someone severed my femoral artery! Great teaser!

  2. Your Teaser definitely makes me want to know more.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog today and taking the time to leave a comment.

  3. I’ve never read Dan Brown, but that’s a teaser that will wake you up. Cool pick!
    Thanks for dropping by My Teasers earlier!

  4. I am not a big Dan Brown fan, but this book sounds good. Intriguing teaser.

  5. From the blurb, it does sound like an action-packed read. Clever teaser!

    Thanks for stopping by Write Note Reviews.

  6. It’s almost always disappointing when you’re looking for an author like (insert name.) Then again, sometimes you get lucky.

    My teaser is at http://suziequint.blogspot.com/2014/08/tuesday-teaser-sacrificial-magic.html

  7. That is a great teaser! Sounds like a killer with a soft spot?

  8. I loved the Da Vinci Code so this sounds like a possibility (even if it isn’t very similar).

    Mine is the first of Janet Evanovich’s Alex Barnaby series. It’s humorous as would be expected, but so far not as good as most of her Stephanie Plum ones. Nice change of setting though with Metro Girl being in Florida. http://wp.me/pZnGI-bM

Tell me what you think!
