Teaser Tuesdays - August 19

I ran across this new meme over at Traci's Book Bag.

Here are the rules:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Let the book fall open to a random page.
  3. Share with us two (2) "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  4. You also need to share the title of the book that you're getting your "teaser" from...that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
  5. Please avoid spoilers!

So here goes!

I'm actually in the middle of reading 2 books, but the one that is closest is the one that will be the subject of this Teaser.

He stood with his face to the sky and let the tears run down his cheeks.

He might have stayed there all night, but a distant explosion -- a lifeboat maroon which seemed unusually loud in the still night -- brought him to his senses.

These sentences are on page 90 of Ann Cleeves' Raven Black (New York: St. Martin's Minotaur, 2008). They are the closing sentences of one paragraph and the opening of the next.
