I am doing my best to tear myself away from the latest sudoku magazine. So far I have read the first few pages of two books.
Look at these teasers – do you know me well enough to guess which one I´ll read first?
“Waking up, George had a nasty taste in his mouth and a throbbing headache that made him want to cry. He was sitting in the living room, his hands and legs tied to the only upright chair. His upper chest had also been taped to the back of the chair, to ensure that he was totally immobile. There was another strip taped across his mouth.”
“Fran sat with her eyes closed. The small plane dropped suddenly, seemed to fall from the sky then levelled for a moment before tilting like a fairground ride. She opened her eyes to see a grey cliff ahead of them. It was close enough for her to make out the white straks of bird muck and last season´s nests. Below, the sea was boiling.”
