Book Beginning: Set in Darkness by Ian Rankin

BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

MY BOOK BEGINNING



Darkness was falling as Rebus accepted the yellow hardhat from his guide.

-- Set in Darkness by Ian Rankin. This is the 11th in Rankin's Inspector John Rebus series, set in Edinburgh. This time, dead bodies keep showing up at the building site of the new Scottish Parliament.

Rebus is one of my favorite series. Any other fans?



Please join me every Friday to 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. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

SOCIAL MEDIA: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.

YOUR BOOK BEGINNING




TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.


MY FRIDAY 56

"You always overdo things!" his mother snapped at him. To which he said nothing, just stared into his pudding bowl, glancing up eventually to wink at Lorna.

From minute 56 in the audiobook.

I'm Rebus fan too - love Ian Rankin's books.

Can you please remove my link to Who Killed Ruby? on this week's Mr Linky? I should have linked to Clouds of Witness - https://booksplease.org/2019/07/19/my-friday-post-clouds-of-witness-by-dorothy-l-sayers/

I've not read this series as it's not one of my favoured genres, but I hope you enjoy it.
