Teaser Tuesday - A Discovery of Witches

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* 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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!

Wow, once again, a Teaser from a brand new book - That's three weeks in a row, folks!  I'm only on chapter three of this one, but so far I'm quite enjoying it.  In this Teaser, Matthew the Vampire sneaks into the witch's apartment to see if she's hiding this ancient manuscript.  I don't know why he wants it yet, but he certainly seems to think she must have it!


The Tease:
 "Matthew had to know if Ashmole 782 was still in Bishop's possession.  He hadn't been able to search her desk at the library, but a quick glance had suggested that it wasn't among the manuscripts she'd been consulting today.  Still, there was no chance that a witch - a Bishop - would have let the volume slip through her fingers."
 -A Discovery of Witches, by Deborah Harkness

What's your Tease?
