First Paragraph: The Accident

I’m reading a new thriller for a TLC Book Tour. I’m excited about sharing this first paragraph with you. I think this is how a thriller should start:

AccidentPrologue

He awakens suddenly, in terror. He spins his head around the spare room, searching the darkest shadows in the blue wash of moonlight, sitting bolt upright, head cocked, alert for noise. He reaches his hand across his body, and grabs the gun.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?

Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea asks us to share the first paragraph of a book we are reading. As you can see it’s called First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros. Visit Diane to read more First Paragraphs.
