Picked up from Cornflower and Harriet Devine, this requires you to find the nearest book, go to page 123, find the fifth sentence then post the next three, so…………

Nearest book is Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie (I pulled it from the shelves while writing my thoughts on the film version), and the fifth sentence on page 123 is:

“I thought she too had been murdered!”

Next three:

“I came at a run, and there she was screaming like a madwoman, and she cried out that she must fetch you and she departed, screeching at the top of her voice and telling everybody whose carriage she passed what had occurred.”

He added with a gesture of the hand: “It is in there, monsieur. I have not touched it.”

Lauren Bacall handled it very differently in the movie, of course, not a screech in sight (or sound)!

Why not have a go?
