Teaser Tuesday: Snake Bite by Andrew Lane

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • 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!

For once, Sherlock could see Mycroft's point—the safest way to live your life was just to stay at home all the time. But if you did that, you missed all the adventure. He smiled to himself. Maybe the best thing to do was to make friends with a doctor—that way you would always have treatment close at hand.
This week my teaser comes from Snake Bite by Andrew Lane. This is the fifth book in the Sherlock Holmes: The Legend Begins series. Here is the description of this episode:
Kidnapped and taken to China, teenage Sherlock finds himself plunged into the heart of a deadly mystery. How can three men be bitten by the same poisonous snake in different parts of Shanghai? Who wants them dead, and why? The answers seem to lie in a message hidden in a diagram that looks like a spider’s web. But solving one puzzle only leads to an even more urgent question: What has all this got to do with a plot to blow up an American warship? To unravel the strands that entangle him, Sherlock must brave terrors greater than any he has faced before.

Sherlock Holmes: Think you know him? Think again.


  1. LOL I think he would be a fun friend and someone you'd want by your side when the going gets tough. But, he's probably the reason you land in trouble too.

  2. Looks like fun - and a good idea to have a doctor as a close friend! Added this series to my list. :-) My TT is here: http://justasecondblog.blogspot.com/2014/11/teaser-tuesdays-november-25-2014.html

  3. Oh I read the first of these and liked it -- then forgot about the series. Thanks for the reminder. My teaser

  4. I've enjoyed the Sherlock Holmes character wherever I've encountered him -- the BBC series, books, movies -- so I'm sure this book would be fun to read. Thanks for introducing me to the series.
