Blurb and Pitch

When you write a query letter, wisdom seems to be divided as to whether to start with a pitch. Many seem to prefer to do that. You open with dear agent’s name, and immediately put in your blurb. The idea is to draw the interest in the book right away. So far I haven’t done it this way, only put in a single-line pitch for the story, the tagline, phrased as part of the request to take a look at it.

But the blurb goes in, all right, usually just in front of the synopsis. What do you think… what’s the best way to do it?
