Teaser Tuesday--Driven to kill

Teaser 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 teasers!

Today's Teaser is from Driven to Kill by Gary C. King. This is a true crime book (a.k.a. non-fiction) about serial killer/rapist captured in 1990 in the Washington/Oregon area.

Kindle Versions, Loc 79 Teaser:

"Although Dodd had not murdered anyone until late that summer, at least not as far as the authorities knew, it would later become crystal clear that this seemingly near-perfect all-American "boy" turned adult had been, in reality, inextricably enmeshed in an extended fantasy state during that period and had been trolling for victims for at least several months before the first murders. He had been gradually working up his nerve to begin the atrocities that would first unbalance the Pacific Northwest, and then ultimately shock the rest of the nation."

What are you reading this week?

  1. I love books like this-- the psychology behind why people do what they do, what transpires-- fascinates me. I'm reading Life of Pi and just downloaded J.W. Maison's newly released Desired to Death. Can't wait to read them both!
