The Friday 56, The House Without a Key

Rules:
* 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 Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

My book this week is The House Without a Key by Earl Derr Biggers. It's a Charlie Chan mystery. Chan can actually be funny. Sometimes it is the actual things he says but sometimes it is just the way Biggers does his accent.

The sentence:

But it was blurred, indistinct. All Boston was blurred in his memory. The blood of the roaming Winterslips, the blood that led on to blackbirding and hot breathless kisses in the tropic night - was it flowing in his veins too?

Well, one can only hope so. It sounds like it might be fun.
