I'm reading A Sudden, Fearful Death by Anne Perry right now. Here are the first lines:
When she first came into the room, Monk thought it would simply be another case of domestic petty theft, or investigating the character and prospects of some suitor. Not that he would have refused such a task; he could not afford to.I adore Anne Perry's William Monk mysteries, and this one has been quite thought-provoking considering the current political climate! The story so far has involved a rape, a murder, and talk about birth control and abortion. I've been working my way through the series and have yet to be disappointed. This is book #4 in the series.
So how does your current read begin, and what are your thoughts so far? Please leave the link to your specific post, not just to the front page of your blog.
