Teaser Tuesdays: Without Fail by Lee Child

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just open your current read to a random page and share a few sentences. Be careful not to include spoilers!

Yet another Lee Child! Yes! In this one, Reacher is hired to try to assassinate the vice-president of the USA. You know, as a sort of security audit; not for real. But is somebody out there trying the same thing – for real? (My first reaction to this is, the vice-president? Really? Do they get assassinated?) Here’s your teaser:

The guy on the right took his hands out of his pockets. He had the same neuralgic pain in his knuckles, or else a couple more rolls of quarters. Reacher smiled. He liked rolls of quarters. Good old-fashioned technology. And they implied the absence of firearms. Nobody clutches rolls of coins if they’ve got a gun in their pocket.

Yes, I used more sentences than prescribed, but wasn’t it worth it?

  2. Ooh, good teaser. Sounds exciting. Thanks for sharing. If you get a chance, my teaser is here.

  3. Interesting teaser! I suppose true as well, if you’ve actually got a gun you probably wouldn’t have a nervous reaction while grasping quarters *lol*

    I hope you’re enjoying this one 🙂 It sounds interesting.

  4. Lol, yeah, you’re definitely forgiven for that! Sometimes it’s needed! Great teaser. 🙂

    My teaser is from the wonderful and mysterious novel The Night Circus.
