The Little One is finishing up Midnight Rain (or at least that’s the plan), this week at camp.
It’s been some time since I read it, but I remember it as incredibly suspenseful and creepy, like the early X-Files episodes (which is a different post). (And I mean “creepy” in a good way.)
Phoebe Rain’s violent ex-husband lies in a coma a thousand miles away. Yet Phoebe knows the voice on the other end of the phone, the voice of that twisted man, who vowed he’d never let her get away. Panicked, she turns to her neighbor, Dr. Alan MacKerrie, who finds the story hard to believe. But now he too is receiving chilling warnings of danger from beyond. Caught between icy terror and mounting passion, is there no escape?
Today’s teaser, from page 147 (randomly selected by Amazon.com) of Midnight Rain:
And Michael said, “Time for you to join me. You and you doctor and that cop. ’Til death do us part.”
And then he was gone, and Alan walked through the door looking thoughtful and saw her standing there with the phone still in her hand.
“The FBI called. The agent said Michael is dead. They’re closing his case.” Her voice was shaking when she said it.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. I’m trying a variation on the mainstream “Teaser Tuesdays” concept. Instead of quoting two sentences from a random page in the book, I’m selecting a snippet that reflects qualities I find in the book.
