Book Beginnings: The Way of All Fish

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

The Way of All Fish: A Novel by Martha Grimes

"They came in, hidden in coats, hats pull

ed over their eyes, two stubby hoods like refugees from a George Raft film, icy-eyed and tight-lipped."

But these aren't the two hit men in our main story, they're two other hit men, these sloppy with uzis, shooting up a restaurant and a fish tank.

Intriguing opening. I like the description of the "two stubby hoods."
