I’m currently reading Mercy Falls by William Kent Krueger. This is the fifth book in the Cork O’Connor series. I’m really enjoying working my way through this series. Here’s the first paragraph:
The Morning-Beverage Measure
After picking up a set of pistol suppressors from a nine-fingered armorer n Las Vegas Evan Smoak headed for hoe in his Ford pickup doing his best no to let the knife wound distract him.
The slice on his forearm had occurred during an altercation at a truci sop. He usually didn’t lie to get involved with anything or anyone outside his missions, but there had been a fifteen-year-old girl in dire need of help. So here he was, trying not to bleed onto the console until he could get home and deal with it properly. For now he’d tied off the cut with on of his socks, using his teeth to cinch the knot.
What do you think?
Would you keep reading?
