My book beginnings is taken from I LET YOU GO by Claire MacKintosh:
"Detective Inspector Ray Stevens stood next to the window and contemplated his office chair, on which an arm had been broken for at least a year. Until now he had simply taken the pragmatic approach of not leaning on the left side, but while he was at lunch someone had scrawled "Defective" in black marker pen across the back of it."
I have seen this book on a number of blogs. I am almost done with the book, and it is excellent.
