It wasn't until I walked around one of the card tables that I saw him. He was lying on the concrete floor in a dark puddle, one leg crumbled under him at an odd angle, his chest a bloody ruin. It was Brian Vanderhall.

Book Beginnings

I should have known better than to let him in. Brian Vanderhall showed up on my doorstep in the falling snow wearing flip-flops, track shorts, and an old MIT T-shirt, the breath steaming from his mouth in little white gusts. It would have saved me a lot of trouble if I had slammed the door in his face, never mind the cold. Instead, like a fool, I stepped aside.

  2. That's definitely a memorable cover. The opening makes me curious about Brian Vanderhall, and I'm wondering why he's dead in your Friday 56 choice. Intriguing!

  7. Between the 56 and the Beginning I have so many questions! Brian Vanderhall doesn't sound like the most popular of people!

  8. The quotes make it seem like a murder thriller, but the book cover is kind of creepy and sci-fi. I am guilty of often choosing books for the cover first.

  11. Well, that was unexpected! I am guessing we are in a casino-esque setting so I'm going with gang-crime! I'd be much more disturbed if I found someone's broken body on my floor! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have an amazing weekend!
