Sex has been a mainstay of the psychic business since Victorian days.  Half the appeal of  early table-rapping had been the filmy-draperies-and-nothing-else-clad female "spirits" who drifted tantalizingly among the male séance goers, fogging up their spectacles and preventing them from thinking clearly.

p.16 Inside Job by Connie Willis


  1. Ha! Fogging up their spectacles:) Great teaser, I haven't heard of this one before so I'm off to look it up! Thanks for sharing:)

  2. That's a different way to look at the Victorian Age.Love the Teaser. I like the title too.


  3. I've never read a book that describes it quite like that, so amusing. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  4. "preventing them from thinking clearly." Some things never change. Great teaser :D

  5. Here is my teaser from Expiation by Greg Messel (page 1):

    My sudden and unexpected return to Seattle was about to trigger a chain of events which completely change my life. Three months from this date my career, my life in San Francisco with my daughter and everything I had known before would be radically altered.

  6. Nice teaser! I'm going to have to look for this book -- I want to know more! :)

  7. LOL what a great teaser, Andrea! I've only read one book by Connie Willis before and I liked it :)
