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'm featuring a recent read, Deep Into the Dark by P.J. Tracy. It's the first book in the Detective Margaret Nolan series. The excerpt shared is from an eBook version borrowed from the library.

Prologue:  Los Angeles, the City of Angels. The sobriquet promised the divine and its golden facade radiated celestial perfection, but peel back the fragile veneer and the deception was revealed. There were very few angels here, and even less perfection, a testament to how torpid the human race had become.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading? 

Deep Into the Dark is a fast-paced, well-plotted start to a new series set in Los Angeles introducing Margaret Nolan, a female detective on the LAPD homicide squad. This first installment features the hunt for a serial killer who is targeting women in the area.

  1. I'm glad you featured this book! I've asked my library to buy it as they have the second book in the series. Of course, I could get the ebook, but I'm enjoying asking for book purchases and they usually are agreeable to my suggestions. :-)

  2. Great excerpt! I haven't read this author yet, but I must! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I'd keep reading. I like that it's the first book in a series. I'll have to look for it.

  4. I'm curious about this one - hope you enjoy it.
