Book Teaser/First Paragraph: TARGETS OF REVENGE by Jeffrey S. Stephens


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB; choose sentences at random from your current read. Identify author and title for readers. 

First Chapter,  First Paragraph is hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea.



Over Lago de Maracaibo, Venezuela

Jordan Sandor was strapped into the small cockpit of the BSG-29 glider. The C-47 twin engine that had been rigged to draw him up into the moonless night began its run down the tarmac. There was an abrupt tug as the towrope was yanked taut, then Sandor felt a second more violent jerk as he was lifted into the air. (ch. 1)

What do you think of the opening sentences of Targets of Revenge, a Jordan Sandor thriller? Does the tease make you want to read on?

Publisher's description:CIA Agent Jordan Sandor is on the hunt for the cold-blooded sociopath known as Adina, whose indiscriminate slaughter of innocent people, including Sandor’s close friend, represents man at his worst.

Hmm, based on these opening sentences, I'm not sure this book would be a good fit for me!

I'm not a thriller/suspense reader, but I could feel the tug to read on to see what will happen next.

I would need to read a bit more to decide. Enjoy the book.

Joanne P (Booklover Book Reviews) said...

Sounds action packed, but at this point it sounds like it could still go either way. Hope you enjoy.

Brian Joseph said...

I am not so into book openings that begin with action. I kind of like the philosophical/musings beginning myself. So this one is not an attention grabber for me.

Staci said...

Uh oh!! I would keep reading a bit more!
