First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros



I'm semi-unplugged for a few weeks, but  as host of First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, I will still be posting on Tuesdays the intros of a book I am reading or thinking about reading. 

Feel free to join in by posting the opening paragraph (sometimes maybe a few ) of a book you decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s). Grab the banner and play along. I am actually listening to the audio of this one, but have the eGalley as well. (Holter Graham is a the audio reader and he is fantastic. It is an addictive read).


"FIRST I'LL TELL YOU ABOUT THE ROBBERY OUR PARENTS COMMITTED. Then about the murders which happened later. The robbery is the more important part, as it served to set my and my sister's lives on the courses they eventually followed. Nothing would make sense without that being told first.

Our parents were the least likely two people in the world to rob a bank. They weren't strange people, not obviously criminals. No one would have thought they were destined to end up like they did. They were just regular --although, that kind of thinking became null and void the moment they did rob a bank."

Would you read on?

  1. I hate it when your parents embarrass you by robbing and murdering people! Sounds like an intriguing read.

  2. I think my book club is reading this one next year -- I'm looking forward to it!

    I finally got my act together to participate, so here's my Tuesday Intro! Thanks for hosting, Diane, and hope you're having a great break!

  3. That is something no one wants their parents to be. But what compels someone to become a criminal is not black and white. I like this intro and am gonna add it to my tbr pile.

    I am participating for the first time:

  20. Hi Diane,

    I would probably carry on reading this book, even without the synopsis, although I was glad that I had access to the full blurb, as it was beginning to sound more like a true memoir, than a beautifully written novel.

    I have made a note of the title and author and suspect that I shall be returning to read it very soon.

    I hope that you are enjoying your break,

    Yvonne
