MY BOOK BEGINNING
"Is this seat taken?" I asked the attractive young woman sitting by herself in the lounge.
-- The General's Daughter by Nelson DeMille. It's a clever beginning, really, because he is approaching an ex-girlfriend who he hasn't seen in a year and he knows won't be happy to run into him.
