My book beginnings is taken from STALKED by Elizabeth Heiter:

""You've got to stop this."   Her husband's voice reached her slowly, as if from a great distance, even though she knew he was standing at the doorway to her daughter's room.  Instead of turning, Linda Varner continued methodically pulling things out from underneath Haley's unmade bed."
