Friday Memes

Friday Book Beginnings is a weekly Meme hosted at A Few More Pages..

This is from V is for Vengeance by Sue
Grafton

Las Vegas
August 1986

Phillip Lanahan drove to Vegas in his 1985 Prosche 911 Carreras Cabriolet, a snappy little red car his parents had given him two months before, when he graduated from Princeton.


Friday 56 hosted @ Freda's Voice is a weekly Meme where we share an interesting snippet from page 56 of any book. This is also V is for Vengeance by Sue Grafton.

Mentally, I squinted, trying to judge the truth value of his claim. I knew he believed it, but was there foundation in fact?

I love all of Sue Grafton's books and recently read this one. Love the character Lindsay Millhone!

Hi Srivalli,

I have only read a couple of books from this series, but I do know a few people who are right up to date with the whole alphabet and are real fans.

I love this uncomplicated mystery writing style, which leaves you feeling satisfied when you have read it, but not feeling too taxed or drained by a comlex plot.

Thanks for reminding me about the series, I guess that's another 20 or so books to add to my reading list then! LOL

Have a great weekend,

Yvonne

I've read a few of Sue Graftons mystery books, but haven't got as far as V. Thanks for sharing.

I've never read any of those alphabet books, although I see them all the time. Maybe I should try one . . .

I like this opening and page 56 made me think (i.e. anything to do with the concept of 'truth' is interesting). Thanks for sharing.
