First Chapter -- First Paragraph -- Tuesday Intros

Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea hosts First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros. Following up on last week's intro is the Stieg Larsson's The Girl Who Played with Fire:

She lay on her back fastened by leather straps to a narrow bed with a steel frame.  The harness was tight across her rib cage.  Her hands were manacled to the sides of the bed.

She had long since given up trying to free herself.  She was awake, but her eyes were closed.  If she opened her eyes she would find herself in darkness; the only light was a faint strip that seeped in above the door.  She had a bad taste in her mouth and longed to be able to brush her teeth.


  1. Oh wow...yes, this one is an addictive read --enjoy

  2. That first paragraph sure is an attention grabber. I have the set of the trilogy and still haven't read them.

  3. Oh, wow! I have read the first one...and have this one sitting right next to me on top of a bookcase. Must grab it!
