"It's the cooling bathwater that wakes me. Disoriented, I sit up quickly, sploshing suds up the sides, wondering how long I've been asleep.. I release the plug and the drain gurgles, a too-loud noise in a silent house.
A shiver pricks my skin as I towel myself dry. A memory tugs at my brain. It was a sound that woke me, the roar of a motorbike in the street outside. I pause, the towel stretched over my back. It couldn't have been Adam, could it? He wouldn't have gone off on his bike, not at this time of night."
I've read every book by this author, some better than others. What do you think of the intro?
