"Bassam Shah had driven through a day and two nights from Denver, stopping only for gas, eating fried pies, drinking Red Bull, and urinating into a plastic milk jug between gas station fill-ups."
First sentence. First paragraph. An evocative and rather disgusting opening for this thriller also launches a new author and the Jeremy Fisk series about New York City's joint task force on terrorism. I haven't read a thriller in a while and am tip-toeing through this one, ready to slam the book shut on any sickening violence. So far, so good.

"Geeseman gestured to two men who looked like they had been sent by a movie studio casting department to play computer hackers. Rosofsky was the plump one, Pearl the emaciated pale one, each wearing jeans, T-shirts, and shy smiles. No eye contact."

I agree with your initial thoughts, the beginning is "rather disgusting" for my taste; have a wonderful weekend! :)

Did he have to use a plastic milk jug?? Men will use anything.

The 56 sounds all thug-like... I like that. The beginning made me cringe... lol

Happy weekend!

Hmmm, no eye contact doesn't seem like a good thing. Interesting.
