Friday Focus: The Friday 56 & Book Beginnings #68


It's Friday . . . time to share excerpts from a current or upcoming read with:
  • Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, where bloggers share the first sentence or more of a current read, as well as initial thoughts about the sentence(s), impressions of the book, or anything else that the opening inspires.  
  • The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice, where you grab a book and turn to page 56 (or 56% of an ebook), find one or more interesting sentences (no spoilers), and post them.
Today I'm featuring The Distance by Helen Giltrow, a debut thriller that I borrowed from the library.  It's the start of a new series.  
The Distance  
Beginning(Prologue)  Day 25:  Saturday
There's blood in my hair.  Twelve hours and I've still got blood in my hair.
(Part 1) Day 1: Wednesday-Day 2: Thursday
I've always known the past might hunt me down--despite all my precautions, the false trails and the forged histories and everything else I've done to distance myself from it.
But not like this.
Page 56:  "He has a choice now: follow, or wait.  Or even run, though running only does you any good if you have somewhere to run to."

My thoughts: I love a good thriller, and the narrator intrigues me with the mention of a mysterious past.

Which book are you reading now or about to start?
