The Friday 56, One of Us is Wrong

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.

The book this week is One Of Us Is Wrong by Samuel Holt. Well, it isn't really by Samuel Holt. It's by Donald Westlake. But you won't find Westlake's name anywhere on my copy. However Westlake is the reason I'm reading the book. The man writes under so many names it is hard to keep track of him. By the way, so far I really like it.

The sentence:

"We'll take lunch." And he hung up before I could ask him anything more. And just three days later four guys I didn't know did their level best to murder me.

Ah, what are friends for if not to get you murdered? I wonder what they had against lunch.
