Looking for the good hook by Karen Vaughan.

 

Gone are the days where IT WAS A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT will cut it as an opening line. It is so cliched and and hackneyed that I would sooner put a book back on the shelf than read it.

How about death was standing on the doorstep. It would not ask permission to enter. It would barge right in and take anything or anyone standing in it’s path. (Note to self to use this one). This line would reel me in to find out what poor sucker was going to buy the farm.
