Welcome to First Chapter/Intros, now hosted by Socrates Book Reviews.
Thanks to Yvonne for taking over FCFPTI. Each week readers post the first paragraph (sometimes 2) of a book they are reading or planning to read. Feel free to join in.
You Are Not Alone; Hendricks & Pekkanen
Macmillan Audio - 2020
Numbers never lie. Statistics, charts, percentages--they don't contain hidden agendas or shades of gray. They're pure and true. It isn't until people start meddling with them, spinning and shaping them, that they become dishonest.

Two WINEGLASSES ARE ON the coffee table, evidence of a romantic night. I clear them away, rinsing the ruby-colored stains pooling at the bottom of the goblets. The coffee is brewing, filling the galley kitchen with the aroma of the dark roasted beans Sean introduced me to when I moved into his Murray Hill Apartment eighteen months ago.
What do you think - read more or pass. (This is my third thriller by this duo, hoping this is as enjoyable as the others.)
