Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where I share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us? Today's pick will be released on January 7th.
Delivering Death; Julie Kramer
Atria / Emily Bestler Books - 2014
" A guard checked a number against the ID bracelet on the man's wrist while marking his name off a clipboard as he stood in line.
Another chained the man's cuffs to his waist and shackled his feet together, so he had to shuffle to board the prison bus behind other stumbling inmates in orange jumpsuits. He heard some snickering among the jailers about something called 'diesel therapy.' The term puzzled him, but amid the scuffling and stern faces, he had no time or nerve for questions."
