Friday Books - Let the Dead Speak

It's Friday - yay!

That means we get to play books.

Click the Book Beginnings pic for a link to Rose City Reader's linkup, and the Friday56 image to link to Freda's Voice.

I don't know about you, but I find that beginning so creepy. Especially the last sentence.

It wasn't easy to find something good from P56 - you know when it just doesn't do the book justice. Anyway, this wasn't bad - Derwent is the Detective Inspector and Maeve Kerrigan the Detective Sergeant he pushed past - both investigating this crime. Just a lot of blood, not body, but Chloe's missing mother. I'm gripped.

What are you reading this weekend?

Good opener. I love it when the author is clever and presents a twist on words or phases. This book does a good job with that.

Ugh, fifty-six hours of rain just sounds tedious.

Love this! Looking it up now :)

I'm reading An Ember in the Ashes - Sabaa Tahir - Here's the link:

Happy Friday!

Great hook for the beginning and intriguing quite too. I think I'd like this one.

That beginning definitely hooked me! I know what you mean about a 56 not really doing a book justice but I liked the conversation between the characters. I'm adding this book to my TBR.

I am with Katherine, hooked is the word I would use to describe how I felt reading those snippets! Happy weekend!

I am intrigued, and I have seen this one around, getting great reviews. Count me in!

Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

Catherine @ Book Club Librarian said...

I'm definitely curious about this one after reading the snippets. And 56 days of rain...ugh!

I won a Goodreads Giveaway Competition for this book, so I have a physical paperback edition, sat right here on the desk in front of me.

When I am going to get around to featuring and reading it though, is quite another matter, especially as we are now up to book #7 in this particular Jane Casey series and I haven't read any of the earlier ones!

I think I like the second cover image the best, but both excerpts captured my attention equally.

Thanks for sharing and enjoy the reast of the book :)

Love the opening line.

How perfectly eerie for this time of year. Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Literary Feline said...

That opening is creepy. But, boy, do I wish it would rain here . . . I really want to give this series a try. I have the first book in my TBR pile. One of these days! I am glad you are enjoying it! I hope you have a great week!

Love the sound of that beginning! :)
