First Chapter ~ First Paragraph

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

First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, is where bloggers post the first paragraph(s) of a book they are currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.

It's been a while since I added a post because I had house guests and a week's vacation around Thanksgiving time.  I'm trying to get back in the blog groove now, but I suspect I won't have too many posts the rest of the year with Christmas and New Year's Eve/Day on the horizon.  

In any event . . . today I'm featuring City of the Lost by Kelley Armstrong.  It's an upcoming read borrowed from the library.
 City of the Lost (Casey Duncan, #1) 


"I killed a man," I say to my new therapist.  

I've barely settled onto the couch . . . which isn't a couch at all, but a chaise lounge that looked inviting and proved horribly uncomfortable.  Like therapy itself. 

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
These are really great opening lines to the first book in the Casey Duncan crime seriesThe narrator has made a serious statement and sought counseling before, so there's a lot for readers to learn about her.  Apparently, Detective Duncan has a secret from her past that she fears will catch up with her, which should make for an interesting plot.

For readers who get hooked by the fist book, the next in the series, A Darkness Absolute, will be published on February 7, 2017.
