Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros sharing the first paragraph, maybe two, of a book that I'm reading or plan to read soon. (I actually started this book last night and I'm liking it a lot - it's that train wreck you can't quite look away from).

"OUTSIDE THEIR MOTEL WINDOW, WYOMING IS LURID WITH SUNSET. A billboard for Winstons simmers on the horizon of highway as if the cigarettes might ignite in their box.
Standing rain has collected in the sagebrush close to the road, and heat makes a perfume from these puddles: herbal, medicinal, other-worldly.
Inside Room 186 of the Wagon Wheel Inn, Elise will be kneeling on the carpet, which is orange like a tangerine. Her hair is greasy and braided, and a name--tattooed in calligraphy on her neck--is visible. She keeps both hands on the shotgun--the muzzle is pressed into Jamey's breast."
Would you read more or pass on this one?
