Beginnings (More)

On Sundays we do beginnings – the openings of all the Peter Abrahams novels and short stories, including those written under the Spencer Quinn pen name. Today we go all the way back to book one – THE FURY OF RACHEL MONETTE (1980). The first book is a big adventure. Can you really actually write a novel that makes sense? Maybe even enjoyable for the reader? When we got to the last paragraph – which had already been in our mind for weeks – we got a feeling that’s hard to describe.

[“The Fury of Rachel Monette may be one of the best books out this year…visual, frightening, fast-paced and mesmerizing. Its author is a natural-born artist, a brilliant young writer who has a truly remarkable talent for writing psychological thrillers of enormous power, depth and intensity.”
– The Denver Post]

It was one of those winds that have a name. The chergui they called it, a hot summer wind that blew from the east. At dawn it was already gathering strength, picking the crests off the dunes and driving the sand through the air like sparks from a grindstone.
