By now I'm sure we all know the guidelines for our weekly Teaser Tuesday meme, so I'm not going to go into detail, but, if by some chance you are new to this feature, or if you'd like to read more teaser sentences from other bloggers, please visit MizB over at Should Be Reading.
My teasers today are taken from John Grisham's FORD COUNTY, his collection of seven short stories that all take place in the town of Clanton, Mississippi in Ford County where his first novel, A TIME TO KILL was based. The second story in the book, Fetching Raymond, is where I've taken my teasers from. It's about a hard-drinking divorce lawyer who is fed up with his job and his wife and gets a 'sounds to-good-to-be-true' opportunity to make a lot of money and he plans to make some drastic changes in his life - if it pans out.
Had Butch been an inmate, he would have been beaten, but he wasn't. He was a citizen, a former convict who hated every cop, trooper, guard, agent, and security type he'd ever seen. Every man in a uniform was his enemy. ~ page 73
