the friday 56


Rules: 

*Grab a book, any book. 

*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader~if you have to improvise, that's ok.

*Find a snippet, short and sweet~or few, just don't spoil it

*Post it. 


I'm (still) reading The Kill Artist

From page 189:

The CIA's executive director, Adrian Carter, was a man who was easily underestimated.  It was a trait he had used to great effect during his long career.  He was short and thin as a marathoner.  His sparse hair and rimless spectacles gave him a slightly clinical air, his trousers and blazer looked like they'd been slept in.  He seemed out of place in the cold, modern conference room at King Saul Boulevard, as if he had wandered into the building by mistake.  But Ari Shamron had worked with Carter when he was the head of the CIA's Counterterrorism Center.  He knew Carter was a seasoned operative--a man who spoke six languages fluently and could melt into the back alleys of Warsaw or Beirut with equal ease.  He also knew that his talents in the field were matched only by his skills in the bureaucratic trenches.  A worthy opponent indeed.

  1. I'm getting a sense of deja vu. I think I saw this somewhere else recently... :-) Happy weekend!

  2. I need to read more Daniel Silva. I read a later book in this series years ago and really liked it. I need to go back and start from the beginning with this one. I hope you are enjoying it! Have a great weekend!
