Teaser Tuesdays: The Job

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Job: True Tales from the Life of a New York City Cop by Steve Osborne

"Don't believe that bullshit you see on TV where the cop talks in a normal tone of voice and tells the bad guy to put his hands behind his head and walk backwards to the sound of his voice. That might work out in L.A. or someplace like that, but it don't work here."

It turns out that the reason cops rush in and start screaming obscenities is to shock the bad guy so his survival instinct kicks in, which makes him much less likely to hurt the cops.

How interesting. I guess it must work if they keep doing it.

Very interesting teaser. And it sounds like a good book, too. I'll be on the lookout for it come publish date.

That's funny, I always wondered whether policemen really do that or not. Mine is from The Walls Around Us:
