Teaser Tuesday (July 30)

tteTeaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read

Open to a random page

Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

Here’s mine for the week:

Most of them lay face down in the ground, the backs of their wolvesskulls smashed open by the bullet that had been fired into them at close range. A few of them lay face up but the eyes were either shot-away or puffed-up so as to make them unrecognizable.

Fisher, Colin (2012-09-15). A Republic of Wolves. A City of Ghosts. (Kindle Locations 932-934). Colin Fisher. Kindle Edition.

Synopsis:

A woman struggles to survive in the besieged city of Madrid during the Spanish Civil War. It’s 1940 and María lives anonymously in the city which, despite what our history books tell us, has held out for four years and, with American help, may see its long siege lifted. A chance meeting with her son, a soldier in the army of General Franco, in the ruins of the city university will take her from the bombed streets of Madrid to the old Moorish city of Granada. Besieged by the Republican forces, it’s the key to defeating Franco. Its Alhambra Palace in ruins, can she, the awkward Captain Gregorio and a group of Andalusian anarchists uncover the secret Lorca left behind shortly before his own execution in 1936?
