Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by A Daily Rhythm where anyone can play along.
I love Agatha Christie, so I was more than excited when my local librarian suggested this title to me. Today’s Teaser Tuesday sentences come from Peter Helton’s novel Indelible. An Agatha Christie-like mystery with a bit of Monty Python humor to it. When laid-back painter and private detective Chris Honeysett accepts a role as tutor at the Bath Arts Academy, he had no idea that a series of peculiar events resulting in the death of one of his fellow were going to land him prime suspect in a murder investigation. Who is framing him, and why?
“Someone deliberately tried to electrocute her? Your Mrs Kroog talked me into giving a spiel on my work up there but I’ve gone right off that place. It’s creepy and crumbling and right by the forest. I bet the trees move by themselves. And I don’t like the sound of your wild man of the woods, either. Be careful up there, hon.
Don’t worry, I’m a painter. What could possibly go wrong? Anyway, the place is crawling with police. Needham is here. Already grilled me a bit. But I’m only half done, apparently.”
