Teaser Tuesday: XO by Jeffrey Deaver

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• 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!


"And there were also, Davis could see, only a few windows and all of them shuttered or shaded.  Although he was perhaps more of a target than some politicians; anyone who's run for office instinctively considers security, particularly lines of fire and sniper's vantage points.  Everywhere.  All the time.

Thank you, Second Amendment."
