Teaser Tuesday/Tuesday Intros: Robert Ludlum's The Ares Decision


Every Tuesday Diane from Bibliophile By the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where  participants share the first paragraph (or a few) of a book they are reading or thinking about reading soon.

Robert Ludlum's The Ares Decision

The roar in Craig Rivera's ears combined with the darkness to make everything he knew--everything real--disappear. He wondered if astronauts felt the same sense of emptiness, if they wondered like he did whether God was just the edge of their vision. 

He looked at a dial glowing in faint green on his wrist. The letters were Cyrillic, but the numbers tracking his altitude and coordinates were the same as the government-issue unit he trained with.

Rivera tilted his body slightly, angling north as he fell through fifteen thousand feet. A hint of warmth and humidity began to thaw the skin around his oxygen mask, and below the blackness was now punctuated with widely scattered, barely perceptible points of light.

Haven't read his stuff before, but I know he is well-known. Sounds like really good stuff though.
