This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a work by a novelist who worked at the Foreign Office:
"The truth is, if old Major Dover hadn't dropped dead at Taunton races Jim would never have come to Thursgood's at all."
The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's voucher and the closing date is June 25.

The winner of last week's competition, who correctly identified Claude Levi-Strauss's Tristes Tropiques , is Garry Marvin of the University of Surrey Roehampton.
