Teaser Tuesdays: The Gun Seller

But Rayner was also three inches taller than me, four stones heavier, and at least eight however-you-measure-violence units more violent. He was uglier than a car park, with a big, hairless skull that dipped and bulged like a balloon full of spanners, and his flattened, fighter’s nose, apparently drawn on his face by someone using their left hand, or perhaps even their left foot, spread out in a meandering, lopsided delta under the rough slab of his forehead.

-- The Gun Seller by Hugh Laurie. This very funny spy spoof has been on my TBR shelf for too long. Heavily influenced by P.G. Wodehouse, Laurie manages to build a decent story, even encrusted as it is with comic gingerbread.

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