Teaser Tuesday/Tuesday Intros: Kop Killer by Warren Hammond

Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea hosts this weekly meme. The idea is that you post the opening paragraph (sometimes maybe a few ) of a book you decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s). 

Kop Killer by Warren Hammond

“You need to eat, friend. You don’t look good. You get that wife of yours to cook you up a nice meal.”
My heart lurched at her mention. “Niki died.” I could only mutter the words.
“What?” His face looked a little less rodent, a little more human. “How did she die?”
“She just did,” I non-answered.
“Shit, that’s a tough break.”
I had no words. I just stood there.
“Where’s she buried?”
My voice barely audible, I said, “Out in the jungle.”
“You didn’t put her in a cemetery?”
“What’s it to you?”
He looked offended. “What if I want to send flowers?”
“Why? You didn’t even know her.”
“It’s common respect. Somebody dies, you send flowers. Why’d you bury her in the jungle?”

Something happened that he had to leave her in the jungle... only an idiot would press somebody on that subject.

I would continue reading, because it didn't grab me yet, but i am curious. Thanks so much for joining in this week.
