This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a work that chronicled the trial of a notorious 20th-cntury criminal:
" 'Beth Hamishpath' - the House of Justice: these words shouted by the court usher at the top of his voice make us jump to our feet as they announce the arrival of the three judges..."
The winner receives a £20 book token and
the closing date is June 22.
