To participate I need to name the book I'm currently reading, share the first line with you, and tell you my reaction to the opening sentence.
The book on my nightstand is an Advance Uncorrected Proof that I received from BookBrowse. It's scheduled for release on February 1, 2011 (first published in Great Britain, 2010).
Title: Charles Jessold, Considered As A Murderer by Wesley Stace
First Sentence: "I met Charles Jessold, the murderer, on 21 May 1910, the day after King Edward's funeral."
Question: Do you like mysteries that reveal the name of the murderer at the beginning? Or do you like to be surprised and try to figure out "who-done-it?"
