Teaser Tuesday Double-Header!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules at Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along!

Two teasers today, so keep scrolling down after the first one!

I am currently reading The Murder that Never Was by Andrea Kane. It is book five of the Forensics Instincts series. A unique plot, good characterization, and interesting twists. I’m finding it very engaging so far!

Lisa Barnes couldn’t believe how quickly her luck had changed.

A week ago, she’d been in poverty-stricken hell. Now, she had a job, a place to stay in a nice Chicago neighborhood, and maybe, just maybe, a future.

Andrea Kane, The Murder that Never Was

A serendipitous crossing of paths between two women leaves one of them dead and the other a fugitive— hiding behind one lie after another to escape a cold-blooded killer.

A 16-year-old female gymnast’s dream of Olympic gold is shattered when the “supplement” she has been taking turns out to be a designer performance enhancing drug.

Her trainer, Julie Forman, is furious at the people who victimized her star pupil, and goes on a personal crusade for the truth. That crusade is interrupted by a serendipitous crossing of paths between Julie and Lisa Barnes, a down-on-her-luck woman seeking a job. This chance meeting lands one of them six feet under and the other hiding behind one lie after another.

In a twisting tale of medical research gone awry, bodies are piling up between Chicago, New Jersey and Vermont as a megalomaniacal genius will stop at nothing to eradicate the research error and everyone involved.

And because I am getting ready to launch In the Tick of Time, you get a second teaser from my new suspense novel which follows sleep-deprived Matt Malloy’s investigation into a baffling outbreak of tick-borne disease and death.

“That was May,” Jared said, enunciating the words like Matt was hard of hearing. “It’s the end of June now.”

“Right.” Matt looked at his desk calendar. “It’s June.” He ventured a smile. “Just testing you.”

P.D. Workman, In the Tick of Time

Do things with lots of legs creep you out? This may not be the book for you…

Award-winning author P.D. Workman’s In the Tick of Time will leave your skin crawling every time you hike through the woods or long grass, long after you have finished reading it. A well-crafted suspense novel that will take you into the psyche of both the flawed investigator and slightly-deranged perpetrator. You will look at your coworkers differently after this.

Matt Malloy, infectious diseases expert, for the DOH vector-borne disease division, knew there was something wrong with the Buffalo Head infection cluster as soon as it hit his desk. But knowing it instinctively and proving it were two completely different things, especially when his boss and coworkers already suspected that, battling sleep deprivation, he’d already gone around the bend.

Matt knew that solving the mysteries of the Buffalo Head cluster was a matter of life and death. He just didn’t know that it could be a matter of his life and death.

It could happen to you. Maybe it already has.

Praise for In the Tick of Time

“I thoroughly enjoyed this page turner and look forward to more.”

“I thought to myself, ‘This place is probably crawling with ticks.’ I may be marked for life.”

“After I was done walking in the woods… it felt like something was crawling on me still. I love [P.D. Workman’s] work and [she does] an amazing job.”

Praise for P.D. Workman

“Every single one of [P.D. Workman’s] books has spoken to me in ways no one or almost anything else has. And I have found strength in the books I’ve read.”

“The way that P.D. Workman writes just flows amazingly and allows the reader to get really invested in a book.”


  1. I am looking forward to the Andrea Kane book!

  2. I hate ticks. I once had to remove one from my dog and it was quite an ordeal. It’s not as easy as they make it sound. At least if you’ve never done it before. In the Tick of Time sounds intriguing though. I just wouldn’t be able to look at the cover often. 🙂

    The teaser from Andrea Kane’s novel definitely caught my attention as did the subscription.

    I shared my teaser for Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman today.

  3. Kathy Martin says

    Both teasers make me want to know more. My teaser this week comes from The Deception of the Emerald Ring by Lauren Willig. Happy reading!

  4. The Murder That Never Was looks so interesting! I hope you enjoy reading this week.

    Here’s my teaser.
