Heat Wave by Richard Castle:
It was always the same for her when she arrived to meet the body.
Now, I am a fan of the tv series Castle, which is about the (fictional) author of this book, so I immediately think of this as the opening scene of an episode of the show. As far as opening lines go, this one tells us there is a body (a key ingredient in a murder mystery), and that "she" is most likely the police investigator, because she is on her way to "meet" the body (rather an odd phrase, don't you think?) and that she has done this thing before. How's that for detection skills?
