The Page 123 meme

I see Linda L. Richards, author of Death Was the Other Woman, has pulled me into the Page 123 meme-thread.

The skinny:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

The nearest book: Steve Hockensmith's Holmes on the Range.

Sentences 6-7-8:
["]You'd be better off shootin' the son of a gun"
