PLAYING ONE TRUE SENTENCE, ROUND #1
Last night, we kicked off a new game to celebrate the release of ONE TRUE SENTENCE, the fourth Hector Lassiter novel.
Every night, I start a true sentence on Twitter (@HectorLassiter, hash tag#1TS), and takers finish that sentence.
Each Sunday, I pick the best sentence of the week and award the winner with a rare copy of the TOROS & TORSOS limited edition.
In the world of Hector Lassiter, the game was one the author played, chiefly with Ernest Hemingway, but sometimes with others, and, sometimes, for unthinkable stakes.
Here are some results from round one:
It's not really murder if...
...you loved her completely. (@keithr34)
...it took the bastard ten years to die. (@hilarydavidson)
...you can't find the body. (@scubagirl)
...no one knows. (@BlackIrishBlarn)
...it's justice. (@nj713)
...the check isn't cashed. (@TyrusBooks)
...the warm rain washed away the sins of the day. (@MysteryDawg)
...the son of a bitch deserved it. (@brianlindenmuth)
...they don't find the body. (@brianlindenmuth)
...they were brothers. (@brianlindenmuth)
...the killer was stark naked and the dead possessed both garden shears and a history dirtier than a Scottish outhouse. (@BigDaddyThug)
