YOUR BOOK BEGINNING
MY BOOK BEGINNING
Duct tape had sealed the mouths of the three men.
-- The Other Oregon by Steve Anderson. Well, that's a beginning to get your attention!
With this latest novel, Anderson takes a break from his favorite WWII material to give his readers a creepy, atmospheric thriller set in the Pacific Northwest.
The Other Oregon comes out on May 19 and is available for pre-order from Powell's or amazon.
Does start creepy but I think I would like it.ReplyDelete
This sounds like it would be something right up my alley! :)ReplyDelete
Yup, with that cover it's definitely going to be creepy! Enjoy.ReplyDelete
That opener got my attention!ReplyDelete
I like that line. That really grabs you, that's for sure.ReplyDelete
I wondered, by the title, if the book was going to be a nonfiction look at Eastern Oregon, a part of the state that few folks out of state would recognize as part of the wet state. I guess not.ReplyDelete
