First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros #24

Today I’m featuring a book that I just started reading. 

Inside the changing room for female staff, I toss soiled scrubs into a biohazard hamper and strip off the rest of my clothes and medical clogs. I wonder if Col. Scarpetta stenciled in black on my locker will be removed the minute I return to New England in the morning. The thought hadn’t entered my mind before now, and it bothers me. A part of me doesn’t want to leave this place.

A few years back I devoured this series pretty much back to back. Then I hit a wall where the books just didn’t do it for me anymore and I quit reading them. But the last couple of years I have tried to read at least one book from the series each year. I decided it was time to read another Kay Scarpetta book.

Personally I can’t tell much from this introduction, but I kept on reading, so it must have hooked me somewhere along the way…
