First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #81 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--to try to entice others to seek out these books.
Today I'm featuring the opening paragraphs and a teaser from one of my next reads, The Three-Day Affair a debut literary suspense novel by Michael Kardos that I borrowed from the library. 

The Three-Day Affair  


Six years ago, my band's bassist was shot dead in a New York nightclub.  Her name was Gwen Dalton, and she'd only been with the band a few months when she was killed.

Part One
Chapter 1

It almost didn't happen--the kidnapping and everything after.  That's the part that gets me, even now.

Teaser:  "Once I began to understand the key facts--there were no grave injuries; this was no mad dash to the hospital after all--my first feeling, however fleeting, was relief." ~ p. 27

What do you think?  Would you continue reading? 

What are you reading now or planning to read soon?
