Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted on Books and a Beat.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Choice: The Tourist by Robert Dickinson.

Page 9:

A lot of the natives think if they’ve been warned about an event they can stop it from happening. Li calls it the Terminator Fallacy, a reference to one of their entertainments. Li has an anthropologist’s interest in their culture.

Page 41:

“Because we weren’t you. We remembered our past.” You’re pleased with your answer. You’d be more pleased if it hadn’t occurred to you after a long and awkward silence.

Book Blurb:

THE FUTURE HAS ALREADY HAPPENED.

It’s expected to be an excursion like any other. There is nothing in the records to indicate that anything out of the ordinary will happen.

A bus will take them to the mall. They will have an hour or so to look around. Perhaps buy something, try their food.

A minor traffic incident on the way back to the resort will provide additional interest – but the tour rep has no reason to expect any trouble.

Until he notices that one of his party is missing.

Most disturbingly, she is a woman who, according to the records, did not go missing.

Now she is a woman whose disappearance could change the world.
