This is a weekly meme hosted by Wandering Words, where you give the first few lines of a book to hook your readers before introducing the book.
Here are my first lines:
Focus, or she’d dead.
Petrosky ground his teeth together, but it didn’t stop the panic from swelling hot and frantic within him. After the arrest last week, this crime should have been f**king impossible.
He wished it were a copycat. He knew it wasn’t.
A great start don’t you think?
And the book is… Famished by Meghan O’Flynn.
Starvation Takes Many Forms
Ash Park, a run-down suburb of Detroit, might not be the most idyllic place to live, but for Hannah Montgomery, it’s safe. At least, it feels that way until a serial killer starts dicing up women from the shelter where she volunteers.
Despite the ever-present tingling at the nape of her neck, Hannah manages to convince herself that the killings have nothing to do with her brutal past—until her boyfriend is murdered in the same ruthless manner as the others. It doesn’t help that the police think she might have done it.
But the cops are right about one thing: Hannah is responsible. Because she knows who the killer is. Now she must face the fact that she brought a monster with her to Ash Park—and his appetite for blood is insatiable.
Everyone’s hungry for something.
Some are more famished than others.
Wow! Can’t wait to read the first book in O’Flynn’s Ash Park series. The author is a clinical therapist so I bet she brings a lot of psychological twists into the story.
