Book Beginning & Friday 56 - #77

Book Beginnings on Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Every Friday we share the first sentence (or so) of the book we’re currently reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

My Book Beginning:  

The Devil's Triangle (A Brit in the FBI, Book 40 by Catherine Coulter

Clos Loce
Ambios, France
April 30, 1519

The light was dying, and so was Da Vinci. 
My Thoughts:  I've read the previous books in this series and have really enjoyed them so I'm looking forward to reading this.  Plus, what's not to love when a book starts with Da Vinci?

My 56 (Also from The Devil's Triangle by Catherine Coulter – about 56% on Kindle):  

Helen hadn’t turned out to be a scientist – no, she was much more; she was an adventurer, more fire in her gut than even their creator, their founder, Appleton Kohath.  Helen was the one who understood the importance of finding the Ark, of what it could bring the family, and the world.  Most of all, Helen was filled with goodness.   

My Thoughts:  I haven’t had a chance to even start this and now I really, really want to read it.  I'm thinking a religious artifacts of my favorite kinds.

So what do you think?  Do these teasers tempt you? Don’t forget to leave your link below and link up at Freda’s Voice.  

About The Devil’s Triangle (A Brit in the FBI, Book 4) by Catherine Coulter

From New York Times bestselling authors Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison comes the highly anticipated thriller in their Brit in the FBI series, featuring special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine in their new roles as heads of the Covert Eyes team—but will their first case be their last when the enigmatic and dangerous thief known as the Fox reappears?

“He who controls the weather, will control the world. He who controls time, will never be around.” —Thomas Frey

FBI Special Agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine are the government’s Covert Eyes—leading a top-notch handpicked team of agents to tackle crimes and criminals both international and deadly. But their first case threatens their fledgling team when the Fox calls from Venice asking for help.

Kitsune has stolen an incredible artifact from the Topkapi Museum in Istanbul, and now the client wants her dead. She has a warning for Nick and Mike: she’s overheard talk that a devastating Gobi desert sandstorm that’s killed thousands in Beijing isn’t a natural phenomenon, rather is produced by man. The Covert Eyes team heads to Venice, Italy, to find out the truth.

From New York to Venice and from Rome to the Bermuda Triangle, Nicholas and Mike and their team are in a race against time, and nature herself, to stop an obsessed family from devastating Washington, DC.

  4. Couldn't agree more! Da Vinci, Brits, FBI - gosh what's not to like! I've never heard of this series, but I am checking it out. Thanks for sharing! Hope you will have a good weekend and here's my Friday Meets:

  5. I've never read Coulter's books, but I'm definitely curious. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “WOMAN NO. 17”

  6. That is a very long series. Not an author I have read but sound like one I would enjoy

  7. I am so far behind in this series. I enjoyed the ones I read but somehow haven't added any to my reading stack for a while. Come see what Grave Visions by Kalayna Price has to offer. Happy reading!

  8. Oooh, interesting. I'd be curious to see where it's going.
