First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #67 and Teaser Tuesdays

It's Tuesday . . . time to share book excerpts with: 
  • First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, where bloggers post the first paragraph(s) of a book they are currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.
  • Teaser Tuesdays hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading, where bloggers post two (2) random “teaser” sentences--no spoilers allowed--from their current reads to try to entice others to seek out these books.
Today I'm featuring the opening paragraphs and a teaser from Missing You  by Harlan Coben.

Missing You 

Chapter 1

Kat Donovan spun off her father's old stool, readying to leave O'Malley's Pub, when Stacy said, "You're not going to like what I did."

The tone made Kat stop mid-stride.  "What?"
Teaser: "'Ever see the movie Chinatown?' he asked.
'Sure.'"  ~ p. 124

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?  
The opening lines make me curious and have me wanting to know more.  I'll definitely be reading on.  I'm new to Harlen Coben's books, having listened to the audio version of Gone For Good, which I enjoyed earlier this year. 

What are you reading now or planning to read soon?
