Dark Houses, by Helen H. Durrant (Joffe Books, April 2016). Second book in the D.I. Greco mystery series. These are the first lines from the book's Prologue:
It was a skill. It was addictive. It was his life.
Creepy. I like creepy, but I get a little freaked out by murder mysteries told from the point of view of the murderer. So if that's what we have here, I'm not sure how far I'll get with this one.
What do you think? Would that opening make you want to go on reading?
Rose City Reader hosts Book Beginnings on Fridays. As she says, the idea is to post the first sentence (or so) of the book you're currently reading, along with any first impressions or thoughts you have about the book, the author, etc. It's a wonderful way of adding new books to your must-read list, and a chance to connect with other readers and bloggers.
