Intro Teaser Tuesdays

AMAZON

Tours January 19


Prologue

It's a clear hard winter day, and blinding sunlight pours into the conference room, glinting off metal surfaces, triggering migraines, and making the room uncomfortably hot, stifling. But in all these tall mid-town towers you can't turn down the heat. You're trapped.


Chapter 9

Erica steps into the elevator and presses 3. Sure, She'll write Claire a memo raising the possibility that the ferry crash was an act of cyberterrorism. When she's good and ready.

  1. An emphatic opening - I have been in rooms like that - but I'm not entirely sure this is one for me, I'd have to read a little more. I do hope you enjoy it

  8. My office is only on the second floor of a two-story building and I can relate to that opening. Meetings in our conference room are miserable temperature wise. Of course, the office itself is always too cold or too hot. The teaser especially grabbed me, cyberterrorism? Ferry crash? I would definitely want to keep reading to know more.

  9. Oh my, another formerly unknown title to add to my TBR list.
    It's good thing I just have a list and it's a bad thing that I don't read faster. So many titles, so little time! :)

  10. Oh, I love the sound of this one...and how the author makes us feel the discomfort of the office space.

    Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  11. I like the opening. It definitely sets a mood. I'm guessing the uncomfortable heat in that conference room comes from some of the meeting's participants too!

  12. The opening paragraph does a great job of capturing corporate culture. The teaser if suspicious. You've got me interested.
