*TTPB = Toe Tags Per Book (average)

Goal:

How to:

  1. No advance signup needed.
  2. Read a murder mystery. Note the victim(s) and cause(s) of death.
  3. Submit one Death Certificate per book, identifying the Cause(s) of Death of the victim(s). Any death (accidental, natural causes, homicide, suicide) counts, as long as the person is significant enough to be named in the book.
  4. This page does not update in real time. Your submission generates an email to the Chief Medical Examiner, who will fill in the data.

Rules:

  1. The challenge is open for business! Challenge runs Jan 1 - Dec 31 2019. Plenty of time to jump in!
  2. Formats: Print books, audio books, or e-books may be used.
  3. You get one Toe Tag per victim. What counts? If the person is significant enough to be given a name, then it counts. (You need a name to fill out the Toe Tag, silly!) Examples:
    • Ten years ago, he was convicted of murdering his barista, Trevor Simpson, for messing up his coffee order. - COUNTS
    • Ten years ago, when in the Chicago mob, he dumped 7 guys in the bay for messing up his alibi.- DOES NOT COUNT
  4. Reviews: You do not need to write reviews, but you are welcome to. If you supply a link to your blog or Goodreads review, I will link to it.
  5. Bloggers are welcome to copy the toe tag image from the header for your blog.
  6. Cross-entries from other challenges are encouraged.
  7. For more details on what counts and what doesn't, see the FAQ page.

Prizes!
