Here are my lines,

'It must have been a tremendous risk to wait long enough to take off whatever clothes the dead man was wearing, dress him in this torn silk and velvet gown and chain him on to the punt in this obscene position, then set the boat adrift out in the water, getting himself wet in the process. Why had anyone bothered?'

from page 6, 'Half Moon Street' by Anne Perry.

That is an interesting teaser! I'm curious about what the rest of the book might be about.

Getting wet was the least risky behavior shown by whomever did this!

What a teaser ... it set the time period and the scene (and was probalby more creepy taken out of context like this!)
