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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

It was an imposing reminder of the city's fundamental purpose. New York City has the Empire State Building, Paris has the Eifel Tower, and Washington, D.C. the Capitol Rotunda. The stillness of morning on the Hill was a rare gift. Only a few ambitious politicos beat the nine o'clock cattle call summoning over 10,000 congressional staffers to their lairs.
It was eerie entering the suite in silence. Our office was normally a constant buzz of activity and noise.
