First Chapter ~ First Paragraph

 It's Tuesday . . . time for . . . 



First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros now hosted by Yvonne at Socrates' Book Reviews, where bloggers share excerpts from a book they have read, are currently reading, or are planning to read.

Today I am featuring a current read, Final Cut by S.J. Watson.  Today is the book's official publication date!!

The excerpt shared is from an eBook I received from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.


Book Beginning:  Prologue

 

She runs across the moor, as hard and as fast as she can.  The sliver of an old moon hangs above her and, somewhere far behind, the village lights shine anemic yellow.  But she keeps her eyes fixed forward.  She sees nothing but the road ahead and hears only the wheeze of her dry breath and the cawing of the gulls as they swoop and dive.  There are no sounds of pursuit, no shouting, no howling of dogs.  She is safe, she thinks.  She can calm down, stop running and walk.  It's over.

 

 

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?

Watson's new thriller is captivating from its opening lines.  Documentary filmmaker Alexandra Young is in Blackwood Bay, a quaint seaside village that has fallen on hard economic times.  It is the site of an unsolved mystery about two teen girls that took place ten years ago, and another teen disappearance that occurred three years ago.  Alex is quickly swept into the village's drama, and may herself hold a very important key to explaining the past.
