Book Beginnings on Fridays - The Woods by Harlan Coben
Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted by Rose City Reader and as she says the idea of this meme is
for you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book
you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the
sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the
opener inspires. Please remember to include the title
of the book and the author's name. There's a linky list on
the website and you can use #BookBeginnings on Twitter.
This week my book beginning is The Woods by Harlan Coben.
I see my father with that shovel.
There are tears streaming down his face. An awful, guttural sob forces its way up from deep in his lungs and out through his lips.
Paul Copeland's sister
went missing twenty years ago. Now raising a daughter alone, Cope
balances family life with a career as a prosecutor. But when a homicide
victim is found with evidence linking him to Cope, the well-buried
secrets of the past are threatening everything. Is this body one of the
campers who disappeared with his sister? Could his sister be alive...?
Confronting his past, Cope must decide what is better left hidden in the
dark and what truths can be brought to light...
