Teaser Tuesdays: Claire DeWitt and the Bohemian Highway by Sara Gran

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. The idea is to open your current read to a random page and share a few sentences. And try not to include spoilers!

I am enjoying the second in a mystery series starring Claire DeWitt, a dark and disturbed private investigator in the tradition of classic PI’s, but female and drug-addled. She’s a funky riff on an archetype: I dig her.

The cops can only do so much. Even if they mean well, even if they’re geniuses, they have fifty or so cases and limited overtime and wives and husbands and children and mortgages. That’s why you hire a private eye. Because if she’s smart, the private eye has none of those things.

I like to imagine her saying these lines in a gruff, hoarse voice. I think she’d make good film.

This quotation comes from an uncorrected advance proof and is subject to change.
