Night Moves by Randy Wayne White
This sentence is long but at least it has something of interest: setting, high in the sky over Florida; characters; context; and some conflict in a missing cat. The only thing that interests me in this sentence, however, is that they are on the trail of the bombers that vanished in 1945. So I would have preferred the narrative follow this line; instead, it goes on about the missing cat.
First thing said:
"The problem with cats," he lectured..."is they have the ability to block human brain probes whenever they're in the damn mood."
In the end, I think this has enough to pull readers in.
Verdict: Pass (barely)
Labels: 2.5 star pass (barely)
