No Exit by Taylor Adams: Book Beginning


No Exit
No Exit 

Title: No Exit by Taylor Adams

Publication: January 15, 2019, William Morrow
Setting: College student Darby Thorne driving in the wintry, snowy mountains of Colorado

Book beginning:
5:19 p.m.
December 23 
"Screw you, Bing Crosby."
Darby Thorne was six miles up Backbone Pass when her windshield wiper broke, and that bass-baritone voice was just kicking into the second chorus. It was official: he'd be getting his white Christmas. He could shut up about it now. 
Page 56:

"Do you know the man who drives this van?"
"No."
"Did he take you?"
"Yeah."
"From your house?...."

About the book:
... four strangers, a blizzard, a kidnapped child, and a determined young woman desperate to outwit a vicious psychopath.

I thought this was a perfect setting for a thriller, especially since we are in the midst of winter!

  3. Sounds great. I've been reading a lot of thrillers lately and this one sounds like it should be on my list. This week I am spotlighting a middle grade fantasy - The Storm Keeper's Island by Catherine Doyle - from my review stack. Happy reading!

  4. What a great opening line! (Not that I have anything against Bing.) Hope you enjoy the read!

    My Book Beginning this week is from the new suspense novel The Water Tower Club by BK Mayo
