The Friday 56 #3


The Friday 56 is a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda's Voice. The rules are simple:

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56, or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post here in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.


It's that simple!



"So, about your trip to Japan," I said "did you happen to buy any doru statues while out there?" She stood up and approached me, standing just a few inches from my face. I was only about five-six tall, and with her massive heels, she towered over me. "How did you know?"

About Murder on the Hill by Kennedy Chase:

"Look out London, there's a new investigator in town! Harley Hill is a twenty-five year old woman in need of a new identity. Until now she's been known as many things: Thief, Bandit, The Girl Dressed Like a Ninja...

When she's offered an investigative position at the Silvers Finders Agency, she decides it's time to go straight. But when a jewelry store break-in she's investigating turns into a murder case, Harley will need all her skills to find the killer and avoid the attentions of a Russian crime boss.

With the help of her new friends, and some from her underworld past, Harley faces a race against the clock. She'll need to uncover the secret behind the artifact left at the jewelry store if she's to catch the murderer. If she fails, it won't just be the job she loses - but her life."
