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'm 3/4 into the audiobook and enjoying it.)
The Old Man; Thomas Perry
Highbridge Audio - 2017 (Mysterious Press)
"An old man should have a dog. Dan Chases daughter had told him that ten years ago, after his wife died." The part that surprised him was the term "old man." He had just turned fifty then. But he supposed she was only giving him advance notice, time to get used to the idea and find a suitable dog. After a man's wife died, he had to do something not to die too.
