Teaser Tuesday #2

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! See the rules at the end of this post.

First of all the teaser of the week :

(...) She watched his eyes on the road and a strange thought came to her – that for the first time in her life she’d done something as a partnership. An ugly, perverse, unthinkable thing, but it had been done by equals. (...)

As I am still halfway through Beauty Queens, from last week's Teaser Tuesday, I couldn't pick up my current read for this meme; This teaser comes from Hanging Hill by Mo Hayder, a book I picked up at the airport before boarding a plane last September and that I recommend to anyone looking for a good crime novel. I couldn't put down.  I'll be on holiday next week and have downloaded a couple of her other books to bring along, because she is an excellent crime writer.

What if you found yourself divorced and penniless? With no skills and a teenage daughter to support? What if the only way to survive was to do things you never thought possible, to go places you never knew existed …
These are questions Sally has never really thought about before. Married to a successful business man, she’s always been a bit of a dreamer. Until now.
Her sister Zoe is her polar opposite. A detective inspector working out of Bath Central, she loves her job, and oozes self-confidence. No one would guess that she hides a crippling secret that dates back twenty years, and which – if exposed – may destroy her.
Then Sally’s daughter gets into difficulties, and Sally finds she needs cash – lots of it – fast. With no one to help her, she is forced into a criminal world of extreme pornography and illegal drugs; a world in which teenage girls can go missing.
Two sisters intent on survival. Until one does something so terrifying that there’s no way back …
