A Mystery Or Detective Novel

We've asked everyone who accepted our challenge to read 12 books in 12 months to submit one sentence from every book they read. As John Piper says, “Books don’t change people, paragraphs do — sometimes sentences.”

This month's category was "A mystery or detective novel." and we should have seen this coming. We had a number of unusual sentences submitted. Here is a sample:

"Does your Lordship desire to be shaved?" - Sue

"Sunsets did that here (LA). Made you forget it was the smog that made their colors so brilliant, that behind every pretty picture there could be an ugly story." - David

"Which is it today," I asked, " morphine or cocaine?" - Lois

"As of tomorrow, you can go around saying that the pope slits the throats of babies and eats them, or that Mother Teresa of Calcutta was the one who put the bomb on the Munich train, and people will say, ‘Oh, really? Interesting,’ and they’ll turn around and get on with what they were doing." - Daniel
