Teaser Tuesday

Here is my teaser from In This Way I Was Saved by Brian DeLeeuw (Page 3):

I enter the lobby of Claire Nightingale's apartment building, here to tell her that I have murdered her only son. As always, the marble foyer is hushed and dim, almost sepulchral, and, as always, two doormen stand watch over the evening shift. The one who opens the door is named Victor. He recognizes my face - of course he does, he's worked here for years - and he says, "They starving you at that college? I can see your ribs, buddy."
