Round two of the Hemingway-inspired, ONE TRUE SENTENCE competition on Twitter is now history. We play to celebrate the release of EL GAVILAN.

I start a sentence and participants finish it, well and truly, adding the hashtag #1TS for a chance to win a signed first edition of one of my seven books. (Please read on below last night's results for an explanation about how to get in on the action.)

Here are some highlights of what our second-round players came up with to finish the sentence:

José shrugged and said, “It’s Mexican math, that’s all—stolen drugs plus one pissed off cartel chief and minus an AK-47 equals…
"...a cocaine fueled haze of violence and a high body count."— Mystery Dawg

"...a trail of interrogations by machete leading right across the border. And it's about to get much uglier."—Thomas Pluck

"...Lee Child's next Reacher book." —Naomi Johnson

"...mayhem to make the devil jealous."—Jen Forbus

We'll play againat 9 p.m. Eastern Monday night. Here's a refresher regarding how to join in:

Follow me @HECTORLASSITER. At a pre-announced time each night, I’ll start a fresh round of One True Sentence by posting the start of a sentence.

Any takers can finish that sentence, rationing just enough of their 140 characters in order to add the hash tag #1TS.

Every Friday night, I’ll review the One True Sentences on the #1TS page, and pick the week’s winner. The one who writes the truest One True Sentence will be awarded a first edition of one of my books with their own One True Sentence inscribed inside. Our One True Sentence.

Remember, you have to use the hashtag #1TS to play (and so I can see your entry).
