Book Beginnings - 6/22/2018

 ***************
My Book Beginnings is taken from A NOISE DOWNSTAIRS by Linwood Barclay:


"Driving along the Post Road late that early October night, Paul Davis was pretty sure the car driving erratically in front of him belonged to his colleague Kenneth Hoffman.  The ancient, dark blue Volvo station wagon was a fixture around West Haven College, a cliche on wheels of what a stereotypical professor drove."

  1. The Noise Downstairs is really good.

    And...the best part is that the noise is coming from a typewriter. :) I taught the first few years on manual typewriters. :)

    This is my first book by Mr. Barclay. Enjoying it!!

    Thanks for stopping.
