And then the murders began

We have a running joke at Tea and Chat that any opening line of anything sounds better if followed up by the phrase “and then the murders began”.

So for this week’s Fiction Friday writing prompt, take a book (at random, or one of your favourites) and look at the opening line. Take that opening line and follow it up with:

And then the murders began.

What happens next?
