Book Tags, True Crime

First Lines Friday #7

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

First Lines:

“I must be in Hell. It was the only logical explanation.”

Yes. These really are the first two lines of a book. Have you read it?

Hint number one: this is a nonfiction book.

Still confused? Okay, so it’s technically a true crime novel.

Netflix based a series off of this book!

What? NO! That is not the only movie Netflix has adapted.

Okay, it’s clearly not a YA romance.

I’m clearly no good at giving hints, so here’s your answer:

It’s about how the FBI created their criminal profiling division, and it’s a pretty stellar read if you have the stomach for it.

Buy Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit.
