I’m reading a pretty bad serial killer book by a well-known writer in the genre.
The first chapter describes a brutal killing by an unnamed gent.
The second chapter beings with a description of the hero doing something illustrative of her character. In this case, she’s jogging, pushing her physical limits, reminiscing about her time as an Olympic rower, yada yada.
The first words of that second chapter are our hero’s name.
I’m wondering how many other books begin exactly and precisely this way, right down to the hero’s name showing up as the very first words.
