Looking for (clean) books that grab you from the first page.

I'm an impatient reader and hate to slog through slow starting books to finally get to the good stuff that starts half-way through. I never make it that far. I want the good stuff from the beginning!
Louis L'amour is good at this. But I don't care what genre--western, fantasy (my favorite), suspense, non-fiction, children's books, young adult, classics, memoir, thrillers, drama--anything. My only criteria is that it is clean (my definition of clean is no graphic sex or gore and no strong language)
