Teaser Tuesday - Great North Road, by Peter F Hamilton

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!


I'm reading Great North Road, by Peter F Hamilton, and I'm quite enjoying it.  The main portion of the story is a murder mystery - and the death may be connected to a previous murder years before.  In this scene, the prisoner Angela and here escort travel through the gate from Earth to St. Libra to begin their search for the alien she claims is responsible for the murders she was accused of so long ago...

The Tease:

"Angela was already searching the sky.  "There," she said simply.  Paresh followed her gaze.  St. Libra's sky was a clean deep turquoise, and somehow seemed to be a whole lot higher than Earth's.  He barely noticed that.  Slicing right across the northern sky like some kind of magical veil was the planet's phenomenal ring system."
