Here's what one of them wrote back:
"Reacher took his seat on the train, leaned back and shut his eyes. He felt something underneath him, in the crease below the seatback. He reached down and took hold of it: a cell phone someone had lost. Well, it shouldn't be hard to locate the owner, and returning the thing should be pretty straightforward. How much trouble could he get in?"
Doesn't that just beg for a writing contest? I thought so too.

Contest closes Sunday January 19 at 7am.
All times are Eastern Shark Time.
Bonus points if you can work in the name of the client who wrote the prompt paragraph or the title of the book or books the client wrote.
