BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
Welcome back to Book Beginnings on Fridays, where participants share the opening sentence (or so) of the book they are reading this week. You can also share from a book you want to highlight just because it caught your fancy.
MY BOOK BEGINNING
By every measure, the operation was a success, but it marked the first time Katrina Leonidivna had ever vomited on her target.-- Gathering Five Storms by Jim Geraghty. Well, that's a sentence that gets your attention!
Gathering Five Storms is the third book in Jim Geraghty’s Dangerous Clique series. The first is Between Two Scorpions, the second is Hunting Four Horsemen.
All three are still sitting on my TBR shelf. But Hubby read the first two and liked them. They are fast-paced, wise-cracking thrillers set right this minute.

MY FRIDAY 56
From Gathering Five Storms:
“We’re putting together a team at Langley and we’re looking to borrow someone with serious cyber and hacking skills, possibly long-term,” Raquel began. “We need someone smart, creative, adaptable – the kind of person who can handle any problem thrown their way without flinching.”FROM THE PUBLISHER’S DESCRIPTION
Storms are brewing. Is it too much for the Dangerous Clique to survive?
Few within the US government know that the Dangerous Clique – a wisecracking, ragtag bunch of rogue CIA operatives operating outside the lines exists. But over the years, the team has made dangerous enemies – and now someone knows exactly who they are and is bringing the fight to them.
After a foiled strike on CIA headquarters and a threatening note that hints that those behind the attack have an axe to grind against the Clique, Katrina Leonidivna, her husband Alec Flanagan, and the rest of the team reexamine their old case files to determine who wants them dead. The chase leads them down memory lane and around the globe as the crew reminisces about the chaotic first days of their partnership.
