Friday 56


Rules:

*Grab a book, any book.

(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.
 
From A Murder Is Announced by Agatha Christie. Everyone in a small British town (Chipping Cleghorn, I love that name!) reads the ads placed by their neighbors in The Gazette.  Amid the help wanted's and the puppies for sale, they find one announcing a murder. At 6:30 PM. At an exact address. The woman who lives at that address didn't place the notice. Everyone assumes it was a prank or a game and her neighbors assemble at her home at 6:30 to see what happens. 

Instead of good fun, something terrifying occurs. The lights go out, shots are fired, and ....  Inspector Craddock is called. He begins questioning the attendees. One guest points a finger at the household help.
From page 56:

"Mitzi's mixed up in it! Awful temper she has, and oh! The airs she gives herself!"

  4. Sounds good. I've read a lot of Agatha Christie but not this one. This week I have Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet. Happy reading!
