First Paragraph: Moving Target

I’ve never read a J.A. Jance novel although her books are extremely popular. Moving Target is the author’s newest book and, thanks to the publisher, I now have a chance to read and review it. I’ve read more than half of it and am thoroughly enjoying it. Here’s the first paragraph:

Moving Target

Lance Tucker had always hated ladders, but between climbing up and down a ladder in the recreation hall and sitting through another one of Mrs. Stone’s endless GED classes, there was no contest. Climbing the rickety ladder to decorate the nine-foot Christmas tree was definitely the lesser of two evils. Lance was five months in a six-month sentence at the San Leandro County Juvienile Justicee Center facility in the hill country some fifty miles northwest of Austin.

What do you think?

Would you keep going?
