First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #119

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 my current read, The Blue by Lucy Clarke, which I borrowed from the library . . .

 The Blue: A Novel 


A body floats, unseeing eyes fixed on the brooding sky.  A pair of cotton shorts has darkened, pockets gulping with water.  A shirt billows, then clings to the unmoving chest.  The streak of blood across the right temple has washed away now, leaving the skin clear and graying.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
This book first caught my eye when I saw it on Greg's Book Haven.  As summer comes to an end, reading this mystery set at sea is my attempt to hang on to the season.
