Have really been enjoying this book by Justin Evans. It’s a kind of ghost story and murder mystery involving Lord Byron (even though it’s set in present day). Lots of good options for teasers . . . This one comes from page 95.
But Andrew couldn’t calm down, because it had arrived, the moment something horrible was going to happen. He had not seen it, but he had felt it coming, and the only way to get it out of him—his body knew, even if he didn’t—was to scream, scream over and over, as loud as his lungs allowed.
