First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #106

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .


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.

Today I'm featuring the opening from a book I borrowed from the library . . .

Night Night, Sleep Tight  

May 23, 1985

Chapter 1

Arthur Unger slides open the glass door and steps out onto his flagstone patio.  He's had a few drinks but he doesn't feel them.  It's late at night, and though the sky is clear and there is no moon, there are no stars, either.  There never are.  Between ambient light and air pollution, he'd have to drive to Mount Baldy to see Orion's Belt.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading? 

I'm a big fan on the Ephron sisters, and several bloggers have read and recommended this book.  It slowly worked its way to the top of the pile, and I am enjoying the story and its suspenseful tone so far.
