Teaser Tuesday - Prophecy by Peter James

Teaser Tuesday is a meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

Rules for participating:

  • 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!
Peter James is one of my favourite authors; I started by reading his DS Grace detective books but my teaser this week is not from this series but a stand-alone thriller.

Cold musty air that smelled of damp stone and rotting wood poured out, enveloping her, seeped through her clothes into her skin, and she stared at the wooden steps that descended almost vertically, their bottom rungs swallowed by blackness, with a sudden sickening feeling of dread.

 This part of London was riddled with secret passages dating back to the  Middle Ages and were used by prisoners escaping from the Tower, by Royalists during the Civil War, by smugglers.
