Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where I share the first paragraph sometimes two from a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon.

St. Martin's Press - 2009

The purpose of the exercises was to lower his heart rate, but apparently he had mastered the technique so well, he was almost killing himself.

Instead he felt something kick in, felt life rush through him, an electric, hot current. He sat up gasping for air, his hands at his throat."
