Teaser from 6% on Kindle
The sick feeling I had been living with...the living, breathing fear I had been feeling, every second of every day... it was all gone.  Every bit of it.  At least temporarily.  For those next few minutes, when I did what I did next.
Book Summary
Michael is no ordinary young man.  Mute since a childhood tragedy, at age eighteen he discovers that he possesses a skill he would never have expected.  Whether it’s a locked door without a key, a padlock with no combination, or even an eight-hundred pound safe . . . he can open them all.
It’s a talent that will make Michael a hot commodity with the wrong people, and whether he likes it or not, push him closer to a life of crime.  Until one day, when he finally sees his chance to escape, and decides to risk everything to return home to the only person he ever loved, and to unlock the secret that has kept him silent for so long.
I look forward to your teaser choice.  Have a great week.


  1. So what did he do next? I really want to know!!!

  2. How funny! I borrowed this book from the library a few weeks ago. Haven't had a chance to read it yet and have to return it on 5/9. So debating whether to read it or not. Haven't heard of it before and I pretty much randomly came across it in the library. Is it worth reading?

  3. Sounds like a good one to add to my list.

    Happy reading!

  4. What a fascinating idea....thanks for sharing.

  5. Quite an intriguing teaser! I'll have to add that one to my list also. Nice to see you back on Teaser Tuesday Marce!

  6. This sounds like an interesting book. I must say I never heard of it before, so I think I will wait for your review.

  7. I am intrigued by this winner of the 2011 Edgar Awards. I had pegged another book, the Queen of Patpong by Timothy Hallinan, to be the winner and now must see if this book is better!

  9. I wonder what happened to take the fear away--and if it's really over or this is the calm before the storm.

    Here's mine:
