* TPB = Toe Tags Per Book (average). This is a measure of how lethal your reading preferences are.

How to:

  1. No advance signup necessary.
  2. Read a murder mystery. Note the victim(s) and cause(s) of death. If unsure what counts, see the FAQ page.
  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 review the data and submit it to the Bureau of Vital Statistics; as summarized above.

Rules:

  1. This challenge is open from Jan 1 2021 - Dec 24 2021.
  2. Genres: You get to decide what is a 'mystery'. Traditional murder mysteries, thrillers, police procedurals, romances, all are welcome.
  3. Formats: Print books, audio books, radio dramatizations, or e-books may be used.
  4. 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. For more details on what counts and what doesn't, see the FAQ page.
  5. 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.
  6. Bloggers are welcome to copy the toe tag image from the header (or any image that catches your fancy) for your blog.

Prizes!

Today's inspirational quote:

medical examiner

The last arrival of the evening was Dr. Sackett, the coroner's physician, grumbling at being summoned at so outlandish an hour; but he began his examination of the body without any comment.

Milton M. Propper, writing in The Boudoir Murder, 1931.
