Teaser Tuesday: Beast in View



June knocked on the door and waited, swaying a little, partly because the martini had been double, and partly because a radio down the hall was playing a waltz and waltzes always made her sway. Back and forth her scrawny little body moved under the cheap plaid coat.

-- Beast in View by Margaret Millar.  This won the Edgar Award for best mystery in 1956, the third year the award was given.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

This sounds very good - it's also the 2nd time today that I've read about a martini and now I oddly find myself wanting one...lol...along with a large steak (clearly it's time for my lunch!).

Here's my Teaser Tuesday
