Book Beginnings on Friday: The Killer of Little Shepherds


Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

The Killer of Little Shepherds: A True Crime Story and the Birth of Forensic Science by Douglas Starr

"On a drizzly evening in 1893, in the French provincial city of Besançon, nineteen-year-old Louise Barant was walking along the riverside promenade when she crossed paths with a man wearing the dress uniform of the French army."

Uh-oh. Run away Louise! Here's a hint, the soldier is the guy mentioned in the book title. Not a nice guy.

That is a very ominous beginning! But it sounds like an interestign book.

Thanks for joining me on Book Beginnings!

Not a good beginning. Real life crime is often scarier than make up crime. Thanks for posting.
