You can read an extract of a book thanks to Penguin Tasters. These are the novels whose first chapter you can download:
- The Widows of Eastwick by John Updike: Those of us acquainted with their sordid and scandalous story were not surprised to hear, by way of rumors from the various localities where the sorceresses had settled after fleeing our pleasant town of Eastwick...
- Arctic Drift by Clive Cussler: The cry rattled through the ship like the howl of a wounded jungle beast, a mournful wail that sounded like a plea for death. The moan incited a second voice, and then a third, until a ghoulish chorus echoed through the darkness.
- The Lost Throne by Chris Kuzneski: The monk felt the wind on his face as he plummeted to his death, a journey that started with a scream and ended with a thud.
