Teaser Tuesday: Cajun Nights by D. J. Donaldson

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Teaser:
He unbuttoned the pocket on his white shirt, plunged two fingers and a thumb into it, and brought out three lemon balls and some lint. He held them out in the palm of his small hand, an appendage she knew regularly handled human remains. "Care for one?" he asked.

The answer came easily. "No thanks."
This week my teaser comes from Cajun Nights by D. J. Donaldson. I was offered a review copy of this book and couldn't resist because I have been meaning to start this series. The ebook version was released on October 31 by Astor + Blue. Here is the description from Amazon:
Imagine investigating a case where each of the several victims had type O blood, drove an obsolete car, and hummed a nursery rhyme before committing murder and then suicide. That’s young criminal psychologist Kit Franklyn’s assignment and the solution just seems plain impossible. Her obese, jovial boss, chief medical examiner Andy Broussard, is just as baffled as she is. Together, they devise strictly scientific possibilities. Not once do they consider black magic to be the culprit until an ancient Cajun sorcerer’s curse surfaces, “Beware the songs you loved in youth.”
