He felt safe in his home until that night. All people did. They had to. Otherwise they'd go nuts jumping at every noise and shadow. They knew there were criminals out there, but not in their houses, not while they were home. The poor guy wouldn't sleep for weeks. (p. 4)

Very sad when you can't feel safe in your own home. Sounds like a scary situation, but an interesting book. Excellent teaser.

Good Teaser! The author is new to me - will have to see what the library has.
HERE is my teaser for the first day of June!

Very intriguing teaser! Nice choice. Mine is at The Crowded Leaf.

Creepy! There is nothing fun about feeling that the boogeyman is stalking you in your own home. This usually happens to me when I am dumb enough to watch a scarey movie at home when my husband is out of town.

I'd hate to be in a situation where I didn't feel my home was safe . . . nice teaser. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on
