This week, I'm reading Orphan X by Gregg Hurwitz
The ironic thing? This is a thriller, and I'm reading it while out of town for Malice Domestic, which is devoted to cozy mysteries. Of course, I like to save Gregg's books for when I have long plane rides, which is why I am reading it now.
Here's how Chapter 1 begins:
After picking up a set of pistol suppressors from a nine-fingered armorer in Las Vegas, Evan Smoak headed for home in his Ford pickup, doing his best not to let the knife wound distract him.
Skipping ahead to page 56, we find this exchange.
He turned to see Mia run-walking toward him in her midheel shoes, still dressed from work.
"Look, sorry, I know this is weird, but can I borrow your truck?" she said.
And there you have it for another week. Have a fantastic weekend.
