Welcome to The Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice.


This is a really fun meme!

The only rules are to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader and find a sentence or a few (no spoilers) that grabs you and post it.

Then go over to Freda’s Voice and leave your link so we can visit your 56!

My 56 for this week is from:


  by J.A. Konrath



Genre: Horror / Techno Thriller

 My 56 from the eBook.

There could be no worse death, Thrist thought. Or no greater death.


Read on if you want to know more.


Thriller writer J.A. Konrath, author of the Lt. Jack Daniels series, digs into the vaults and unearths a technohorror tale from the depths of hell…

1906 – Something is discovered by workers digging the Panama Canal. Something dormant. Sinister. Very much alive.

2009 – Project Samhain. A secret underground government installation begun 103 years ago in New Mexico. The best minds in the world have been recruited to study the most amazing discovery in the history of mankind. But the century of peaceful research is about to end.

Because it just woke up.

Book Description

When linguist Andrew Dennison is yanked from his bed by the Secret Service and taken to a top secret facility in the desert , he has no idea he’s been brought there to translate the words of an ancient demon.

He joins pretty but cold veterinarian Sun Jones, eccentric molecular biologist Dr. Frank Belgium, and a hodge-podge of religious, military, and science personnel to try and figure out if the creature is, indeed, Satan.

But things quickly go bad, and very soon Andy isn’t just fighting for his life, but the lives of everyone on earth…

  2. Breana M. says:

    Origin sounds like an interesting story. Thanks for mentioning it. :-)

  3. Kathy Martin says:

    I have the Jack Daniels books on TBR mountain but I think I’ll avoid this one. I so don’t do horror. I’m reading a science fiction novel from my TBR stack – Dragon’s Time by Todd McCaffrey. Happy reading!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I still need to catch up on his J D books. Got all of them now. This is one of his first books and I like it a lot.

  4. What? What could be no worse or better death? Intriguing.

  5. I don’t think I’ve ever picked up a techno thriller before. Such an ominous 56 and that character name! Happy Friday :)

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I’ve read some and this ranks at the top. Never a dull moment and some serious twists.

  6. Freda Mans says:

    I like this author a lot. Though I have only read one book. :-) I’d read this one though too! Happy weekend!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      This is a dark one. And he writes even darker ones when co authoring with Jack Kilborn.

  7. Candid Cover says:
