Like the excitement of the World Cup, the Wheel of Time has turned ‘round to Teaser Tuesday.
I’m falling behind on my reviews. Ah, well. This week I’m reading Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero.
The Goodreads Blurb:
1990. The teen detectives once known as the Blyton Summer Detective Club (of Blyton Hills, a small mining town in the Zoinx River Valley in Oregon) are all grown up and haven’t seen each other since their fateful, final case in 1977. Andy, the tomboy, is twenty-five and on the run, wanted in at least two states. Kerri, one-time kid genius and budding biologist, is bartending in New York, working on a serious drinking problem. At least she’s got Tim, an excitable Weimaraner descended from the original canine member of the team. Nate, the horror nerd, has spent the last thirteen years in and out of mental health institutions, and currently resides in an asylum in Arhkam, Massachusetts. The only friend he still sees is Peter, the handsome jock turned movie star. The problem is, Peter’s been dead for years.
The time has come to uncover the source of their nightmares and return to where it all began in 1977. This time, it better not be a man in a mask. The real monsters are waiting.
The Truly Random Number Generator sends us to page 131:
Black matter and pieces of cartilage splashed on to Andy’s sweater and face.
The headless thing wavered and collapsed on the ground, it’s medial limbs still twitching.
Nick lowered the smoking shotgun, gaping at the corpse. Then he polled the girls: “We were all seeing that, right?”
