First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros #7


Diane over at Bibliophile by the Sea hosts this meme.

Today I’m featuring a review book that I am currently reading.


Breaking into an astronaut’s home took time. There were research and preparation to account for. An assassination plan in case the subject failed my testing. And even establishing a schedule and behavioral pattern for each astronaut could take weeks.

My investigation of Robert Jeffrey Meehan, Ph.D., was no exception.

It had taken five visits to his apartment building, logging his routine and determining his usual bedtime, before I felt comfortable enough to pick the lock on his door the first time.

Now I stood at the foot of his bed…….

I stopped in the middle of a sentence because I felt like this is where you really get a feel for the opening few chapters. And let me tell you, I think the main character in this book (Lela White) is absolutely insane – breaking into homes …. assassination plans …. standing at the foot of someone’s bed … while they sleep! Yeah, she’s nuts! But I will admit that for some reason I keep reading and reading this book, I have to know exactly what is the matter with Lela.

So would you keep reading this one?

  1. I’m very curious by this intro and would read more. What is the name of this book – did I miss that?

    1. I’m sorry I didn’t realize I forgot the title to the book. It’s “The Trajectory of Dreams” by Nicole Wolverton. It’s a debut book for this author and was just released.
