I am currently about 70 pages from the end of Dem Bones' Revenge by Kris Neri. I'm actually going to cheat and include the first paragraph, aka the first two sentences. And they are:
"You do see I have no choice, don't you, Tracy?" the breathy voice said over the
phone. "I have to kill you."
Now if that's not going to catch your attention and make you keep reading, I don't know what will. That, to me, is a great beginning. And it sets up a great first page that introduces the main character and allows the humor of the novel to come through.
I plan to finish the book today, so check back next week for a full review of it.
