My book beginnings is taken from A KILLER HARVEST by Paul Cleave:

"The office used to be an old shipping container, its walls scratched and dinged and pitted with rust, now painted gray.  These days the only traveling it does is on the back of a truck as it rolls its way up and down the country--a journey it makes once, sometimes twice a year."

    1. It is a very curious beginning and doesn't match at all with the intensity of the book.

      I think you will love this book, Laurel.

      Thanks for stopping.

  3. If as you say the beginning and the book do not match, it must make for an interesting choice!

    1. It is a thriller, and that calm beginning doesn't fit. :)

      The book is VERY good, though.

      Thanks for stopping, Mystica.
