First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - Wilde Lake; Laura Lippman


Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where I share the first paragraph sometimes two, of a book that I'm reading or plan to read soon.  

Wilde Lake; Laura Lippman
Harper Collins - 2016

PART ONE

"When my brother was eighteen, he broke his arm in an accident that ended in another young man's death.  I wish I could tell you that we mourned the boy who died, but we did not.  He was the one with murder in his heart that night and, sure enough, death found him. Funny how that works."

What do you think -- keep reading or pass? 
(Feel free to join in this week by posting your intro below?

  6. That is definitely an opening that leaves me wanting too know more. I would keep reading. Why did he have murder in his heart? Had he been trying to kill the brother?
