Teaser Tuesday from The Gardens of the Dead

teaser-tuesdayTeaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading:

Share a couple or more sentences from the book you’re currently reading. 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!

And please avoid spoilers!

My teaser today is from page xii of The Gardens of the Dead by William Brodrick:

She would never behold Charles, her husband again … he was at Smithfield Market, fretting over the morrow; or Nicholas, her unwary son … he was probably on the Barrier Reef, among the brightly coloured fish; or George, her friend and accomplice, who was waiting beneath a fire escape. And yes, in terms of these grand designs of hers, death had come too soon. It was, as ever, the spoiler.

William Brodrick was an Augustinian friar before leaving the order to become a practising barrister. The Gardens of the Dead is his second novel featuring Father Anselm, the barrister turned monk.
