Teaser Tuesday, September 7

So the rules are you pick two sentences at random from your current read. I'm confessing right now that these two sentences are not picked at random. I just liked them a lot. They are, however, from my current read and they are two sentences, so I'm just skirting the law a little bit, which seems appropriate for the anti-hero noir mystery that I am reading: If the Dead Rise Not by Philip Kerr.

If the Dead Rise Not (Bernie Gunther)Though I've read many a mystery set during the period of Hitler's Germany, I've never read one set inside Hitler's Germany from a German perspective. Here's the teaser:

As one of the house detectives at the Adlon, I was expected to keep thugs and murderers out of the hotel. But that could be difficult when the thugs and murderers were Nazi Party officials.

Oh, it's very satisfying!

Last week on Teaser Tuesday: I had a quote from Red Sky at Morning. I hope to do a book review, but it may have to wait a day or two. Short review: what a terrific book. Stay tuned.
