Teaser Tuesday: Terugkeer Ongewenst, Charles Lewinsky

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!

I am reading a Dutch book at the moment. It is not translated in English yet (but I hope it will be cause it is very good). This means I will write my teasers in Dutch with a free translation of the line.

Terugkeer Ongewenst Charles Lewinsky
