Book Beginnings: The Wife, the Maid, and the Mistress

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. 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 Wife, the Maid, and the Mistress by Ariel Lawhon

"We begin in a bar."

The wife has an annual ritual where she goes to the bar where her husband was last seen, and has a whiskey (and one for her missing husband). Some years the detective joins her. The maid and the mistress are both long gone.
