Book Beginnings: Bowling Avenue

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme 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.

Bowling Avenue by Ann Shayne

"The burglar alarm is wailing like a wounded child, and I have no idea how to turn it off."

Even when you do know the code, that's a horrible sound. And I like that she called it "wounded," as our narrator is going into her sister's house without the code because her sister has died.
