Book Beginnings, November 15, 2013

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

My Book Beginning this week is from Clean by Alex Hughes.  This is a book I read over a year ago and just looked up on my book shelves.  It is the first in a series really like. The author is going to be a Coastal Magic in February and I hope to go.  I am waiting to hear how long the recovery from surgery on a torn meniscus will be before I sign up.  Here is the beginning.
Clean (Mindspace Investigations, #1) 
"My first interview of the night was Esperanze Mensalez-Mar, a thirty-something woman dress in a pink-pressed suit I suspected cost more than my last paycheck.  Not that I'd seen the paycheck, but that was the kin of impression she gave off, like she had too much money to copy.  She was here as a suspect in the death of her husband."

Goodreads says this about Clean:

"I used to work for the Telepath’s Guild before they kicked me out for a drug habit that wasn’t entirely my fault. Now I work for the cops, helping Homicide Detective Isabella Cherabino put killers behind bars. My ability to get inside the twisted minds of suspects makes me the best interrogator in the department. But the normals keep me on a short leash. When the Tech Wars ripped the world apart, the Guild stepped up to save it. But they had to get scary to do it—real scary. Now the cops don’t trust the telepaths, the Guild doesn’t trust me, a serial killer is stalking the city—and I’m aching for a fix. But I need to solve this case. Fast. I’ve just had a vision of the future: I’m the next to die."
