The First Few Pages is a "reader’s advisory" program. The purpose of reader’s advisory is to help you find books you might like to read. In this program, I will read you the first few pages of a book, and I hope that this will inspire you to run out and borrow or buy a copy to read. This is Pilot Program #2: Greg Holch Reads Brat Farrar.
Brat Farrar is a mystery novel by Josephine Tey. It was written in 1950 at the end of the Golden Age of mystery novels, and is 286 pages long. This book was written for adults. However, it is commonly read by students in middle school. I have no connection with the author or the publisher. I bought this copy at a bookstore.
