Book Beginnings: The Monster in the Box
Book Beginnings on Fridays is a meme with this theme: Share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
Visit the post at Rose City Reader and view the other links and get a glimpse of books you may not be familiar with.
The first two sentences in the book I am currently reading are:
He had never told anyone. The strange relationship, if it could be called that, had gone on for years, decades, and he had never breathed a word about it.
This is the 22nd book in the Inspector Wexford series and it is the next to the last in the series (so far). So I am nearly done with this series. And then I am going to start all over again, since I have all the books. (Actually, I have already read the first book in the series, From Doon with Death, for the second time, and am ready to read the second one.)
In this book, Wexford is nearing the end of his career as a policeman, and he is remembering back to a case at the beginning of his career and a man who has haunted him all these years. I am not far into the book but I can already tell that the story will be a compelling one. I hope so.
