First Impressions

December 8, 2006

This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is by an author who, like Wilkie Collins, wrote what was termed "sensation novels":

"Faint streaks of crimson glimmer here and there amidst the rich darkness of the Kentish woods."

* Entries, including postal address, should be sent to First Impressions, The Times Higher , Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1W 1BX, faxed to 020 7782 3300 or emailed to theschat@thes.co.uk

The winner receives a £25 book voucher. The closing date is December 11.

The winner of last week's competition, who identified P. G. Wodehouse's Aunts Aren't Gentlemen, is Nicola C. King, a training and development officer at St Andrews University.
