Friday Books - The Steel Kiss

Well hello everyone. Friday again. We get to link up with other bloggers and share our favourite things - books.

BookBeginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader and Friday56, hosted by Freda's Voice, are where you'll find them, and the rules are easy - share the beginning and p56.


My Book this week is The Steel Kiss by Jeffery Deaver






It's Amelia Sachs and Lincoln Rhyme. Old familiar characters that I haven't read in a few years. And she finds Unsub 40 in the opening line. Only something else happens, and she doesn't. And Lincoln is retired from crime investigations. Gasp.









So many dead ends, so far. It's a little frustrating, but I'm sure Deaver is setting us up for an exciting read.




I think these covers are quite different, although both have that harsh metallic feel, which I suppose is exactly right.

I'm on P145 and it's ok, picking up now, which if it hadn't, I may have had to put it down. 

Tell me what you're reading in the comments, and I'll pay you a visit.

Happy restful weekend everyone!

That 56 leads me to believe the plot is going somewhere. I'm glad it's picking up for you and hope it stays an enjoyable read.

Love the Ann Patchett quote in the sidebar :-)

Deaver has a very unique, strong voice. Sometimes a strong voice can be harder to read. Good luck.

I haven't read anything by Deaver before but this sounds intriguing and I definitely want to read more of this genre!

I've been wanting to read Deaver and this sounds intense! Plus, I'm not sure I've seen a car described as arterial blood red before!

That's got to be traumatizing for that kid. Sounds like an interesting mystery. Have a lovely weekend!

I've not read one of his books in a while. This sounds great.
