The Friday 56: Mystic

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.


This week the book is Mystic River by Dennis Lehane, and the 56 is juicy!

On a second look, she noticed it wasn't more than a tenth of an inch deep. But it was long. And it was bloody. Though not enough to account for all the blood on his shirt and neck.

Actually (and surprisingly) this book has nothing to do with vampires, werewolves, fairies, little people, or any of that stuff. It's a simple crime story. Well, not simple, but not fantasy. And I mean juicy but it's a good representation of the book and will leave you hanging as well as juicy - it's bloody for Halloween!

Oooh, a long and bloody cut?
