Teaser Tuesday: Death Watch

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 "teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists!

This week my teaser comes from an intriguing new book, Death Watch by Ari Berk. I'm not too far along, but so far I'm really attached to the main character, Silas.

Here's the blurb:

They say the dead should rest in peace. Not all the dead agree. One night, Silas Umber's father Amos doesn’t come home from work. Devastated, Silas learns that his father was no mere mortician but an Undertaker, charged with bringing The Peace to the dead trapped in the Shadowlands, the states of limbo binding spirits to earth. Now, Silas must embark on a dangerous path into the Shadowlands to embrace his destiny and discover the truth about his father—no matter the cost.

Here's my teaser, from page 22:

     And what was she jealous of?
     Of Silas?
     Of them?
     Of those folk Amos claimed to help?
     Please, she thought, what kind of man prefers the dead to the living?
     My man, she told herself. Mine does.
     Dolores had started grinding her teeth.
     She took another sip of her warm gin and a deep breath after that.
     I'm not drunk, she told herself.
