Book Beginnings: Balance of Power

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme originally hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages but now hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Balance of Power by Richard North Patterson

"Feeling the gun against the nape of her neck, Joan Bowden froze."

Wow, that's quite a gripping start to this novel! Impossible to put the book down after that opener!

That opener definitely makes me want to read more! I'll be adding this book to my Kindle.
My book beginning is from SEASON OF SISTERS.
