first sentence?

After looking at a few books on authonomy.com, I am beginning to realize the importance of the first sentence.  First sentence ideas for my Caribbean island murder mystery:

The pilot crossed himself and kissed the gold Virgin Mary medallion hanging around his neck.
OR
The pilot with the Virgin Mary hanging on a gold chain around his neck crossed himself.

Sam gripped the armrests of her seat with white knuckles and closed her eyes.

Sam didn’t even like reggae music, yet here she was working in a bar that played reggae exclusively.

Green Island was more brown than green.
