Friday Focus: The Friday 56 & Book Beginnings #66


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 a book I borrowed from the library.  Trust No One is the latest suspense novel from best-selling author Jayne Ann Krentz . . . 
 Trust No One 

Beginning:   The note pinned to the front of the dead man’s silk pajamas was a one-sentence email printed out from a computer: Make Today a Great Day the Witherspoon Way.

Page 56:  "'A long time ago I was warned not to get personally involved with the people who work for me.  That way madness lies.'"

My thoughts: Jayne Ann Krentz's books and characters are completely engaging.  As the opening sentence illustrates, this masterful storyteller sets a suspenseful mood. 
Which book are you reading now or about to start?
