I was looking through some of the books on my line-up seeing which one’s first paragraph really grabbed my attention. This is the first three paragraphs from Two and a Half Dead Men by Jason Krumbine.
“What the hell?” the guy on the floor says, appropriately freaking out.
“I’m Thane,” the shorter man with the lighter, closely cropped hair says. He points to the guy standing next to him. “This is my brother, Mort. Our last name is Grym. It’s funny, you won’t get it right away, but you will in a minute.”
“And you’re dead,” Mort points to the man on the floor impatiently.
So, would it grab your attention? I found it rather amusing.
