indicates vital statistics and autopsy notes updated
* 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, and includes a cause of death you can cite, then it counts. Examples:

    • Sophia was convicted of shooting her barista, Arabica Simpson, for messing up her coffee order. - COUNTS, NAMED and CAUSE OF DEATH cited

    • While in the Chicago mob, Dwayne drowned 7 guys in the bay for messing up his alibi.- DOES NOT COUNT (CAUSE OF DEATH cited, but victims not named)

    • He murdered his wife's asthmatic lover, Elmont Q. Thorpmeister III for messing up their relationship. - DOES NOT COUNT (NAMED, but no CAUSE OF DEATH cited).

  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.
