Welcome to First Chapter/Intros, hosted by Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews. Each week readers post the first paragraph (or 2) of a book we are reading or plan to read soon. I just picked this one up at the library.
THEY MUST HAVE BEEN FOLLOWED. That's the thought I return to after all these years.
They must have been tracked as they left the Skyland lodge and stepped across Skyline Drive, the well-traveled backbone of Virginia's Shenandoah National Park. He--for murderers are almost always hes--must have been prowling Skyland's Parking lots and public areas, hoping he's find the right target. Perhaps he studied the two young women as they lounged in the grass outside the lodge, oblivious as they consulted a map or warmed themselves in the afternoon sun. Maybe he bumped into one of them as she was leaving the restroom or grabbing a drink in the taproom. Something about their countenance and mannerisms must have caught his eye, made him decide he'd found what he was hunting for.
What do you think - read more of pass? Are you a true crime fan? I am as long as it isn't too gory.
