Teaser Tuesday: Year of the Horse


Just grab your current read, open to a random page, and share a few "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

By the time he'd finished reading the notebook, Jack's cigarette was little more than a tube of ash. He stubbed the remains out on his boot-heel.
<<Is it him?>> he asked.
Tzu-lu was so surprised at hearing a white man speak Chinese that he very nearly missed what came next.

from chapter 1 of Year of the Horse by Justin Allen

Still not sure what to make of this yet, but I'm looking forward to the Chinese Western vibes, a la Firefly (w/o the sci-fi) 8D
