Teaser Tuesdays (29): The Mapmaker and the Ghost

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!

"Goldenrod whipped around. Standing there was a tall, elegant man. He was dressed in very old-fashioned clothing: a maroon coat with tails, a beige scarf around his neck, tan pants, and high brown boots, and he leaned on a thin, elegant cane. He had gray hair, though his face looked pretty young and unlined with its long nose and small blue eyes. But perhaps the most extraordinary thing about him was that he was rather transparent."

I love this teaser! I think it's funny that the author describes the man completely but leaves the most unusual, outrageous thing for last -- his transparency! This sounds like a fun book.
