I Am the Only Running Footman by Martha Grimes - Teaser Tuesdays

"The thin plain fabric that had been woven around David Marr and Ivy Childess had now been interwoven with  more exotic threads, perhaps obscuring rather than heightening the pattern in the carpet, There was also the disquieting knowledge that Macalvie was right, that solving the murder of Ivy Childess depended upon solving the murder of Sheila Broome."

Re-reading old Richard Jury murder mysteries by Martha Grimes this one's "I Am the Running Footman."

The Running Footman is a real pub in Mayfair, London, off Berkeley Square (pictured above) find out more about this historic public house here.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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!
