Great Opening Paragraph 98… ‘Armadillo’ #amwriting #FirstPara

William Boyd“In these times of ours – and we don’t need to be precise about the exact date – but, anyway, very early in the year, a young man not much over thirty, tall – six feet plus an inch or two – with ink-dark hair and a serious-looking, fine-featured but pallid face, went to keep a business appointment and discovered a hanged man.”
‘Armadillo’ by William Boyd
