Iles be reading this book

I was shelving books this afternoon and picked up the book DEAD SLEEP by Greg Iles to return to the stacks. I opened it up to the first sentence and read, closed the book with satisfaction and placed it in my stack of books to check out. It read:
I stopped shooting people six months ago, just after I won the Pulitzer Prize.

That is an example of a great hook. It's going home with me.
