First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea. It's an opportunity to share the first paragraph(s) of a book I am currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.

What do you think? Would you continue reading?
I love mysteries set in Victorian London. Such stories evoke memories of Sherlock Holmes and Jack the Ripper. The opening lines are intriguing and have me wondering, who could commit such crimes?
The Mangle Street Murders is Book 1 in the new Gower Street Detective series.
