Teaser Tuesday - The Killer of Little Shepherds by Douglas Starr

So it's Tuesday again. Lately, I've been in kind of a reading slump - I have so many Japanese books to read, I end up not wanting to read at all, not in English or Japanese. Anyway, I'm hoping this week's book can break the slump.

The Killer of Little Shepherds is a non-fiction story about the French version of Jack the Ripper and how forensic science came about (like what the subtitle says). I like Bones and CSI, so I'm hoping this gets me all the way through the end, and I can go back to reading at my usual pace instead of spending my commute playing games on the phone.

"Friar Brûlé straightened the clothing to restore the girl's modesty and cover her ghastly wounds. Someone, apparently, had stolen her shoes." 

What is your teaser this week?

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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 teasers!
