Teaser Tuesday - Beating the Devil's Game by Katherine Ramsland

Hey!! I hope everyone has a good start to their week! I've been down with a cough for a while, but it's finally starting to get better! (Which is really good because a friend of mine came yesterday, and I'll be showing her around town).

On the reading side, I'm slowing making my way through "Beating the Devil's Game" by Katherine Ramsland. It's a history of forensic science, and I find it extremely interesting.

My teaser:

"Then on October 12, 1923, the number 13 train was blown up inside a tunnel in Siskiyou, Oregon, and four men were killed. Daniel O'Connell, chief of the Southern Pacific police, arrived to investigate" (page 224)

The book features a lot of cases, which is probably why it's so easy to read.

What about you? How's your week going, and what are you reading?
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of Books and a Beat. 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!


  1. Interesting. This would be a valuable asset for anyone writing murder mysteries, especially those set in the past. The subject is fascinating.

  2. This sounds fascinating. I wish I'd had as much of an interest in forensics when I was college age as I do now.

  3. I think I would find this one interesting too. Anything forensic captures my interest.


I really do appreciate all comments, and I'll try my best to reply within 24 hours!
