Teaser Tuesdays: Balance of Power

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

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!

Balance of Power by Richard North Patterson p. 21

"Joan's face was a study in confusion--by turns fearful, irresolute, resistant, and imploring. He searched within himself for the words to reach her and realized, against his bone-deep instinct to seal off the past, that they could not be the words of an observer."

It can be very hard to convince a person of something they don't want to hear, which is why Kerry Kilcannon decides to tell Joan, his fiancee's sister, why he truly understand what domestic abuse is.
