Tuesday Teaser

I have just started my new book, City of Ashes, so today's teaser is as much a teaser for me as it is for you!

City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare - pg. 9

"Then a lopsided smile spread across her face as she looked down at Mikael Blomkvist, who for half a minute acted out a jerky pantomime before he finally punched in the code and then leaned on the doorjamb looking as though he had just avoided having a heart attack. Kalle F***ing Blomkvist had tracked her down." (The Girl Who Played With Fire, Stieg Larsson, p. 659)

p. 659 - woah! Almost done!
