The 10 Best


m2

What do 10 best-selling crime fiction authors have in common that no other 10 best group does?
They are in a competition to help a campaign by the University of Dundee raise funds to build a world-class morgue.

From the Million for a Morgue website here are some details:

HOW IT WORKS

  • Every £1 donated is equal to one vote for your selected author
  • Select the author you wish to vote for and make your donation via the University of Dundee website
  • The author you vote for will receive those votes. For example, if you want to vote for Lee Child, click on the link on his page. If you donate £20, then 20 votes will go towards Lee
  • You can make as many donations as you want if you wish to spread out your votes. Just click on the link corresponding to the author you wish to vote for
  • The votes will be checked on a weekly basis and the site updated with the author votes
    The competition will close once the £1M target is reached and the author with the most votes will be declared the winner

The idea to involve the crime writers was borne out of the friendship between Professor Sue Black, the Director of the CAHID at the University of Dundee, and crime fiction writer Val McDermid. Professor Black has often assisted Val with the forensic details required for her crime stories and they have appeared at book festival events together discussing the thought process behind crime fiction.

It’s an incredible concept and the featured ten you can vote for are:

Lee Child – Tess Gerritsen – Jeffrey Deaver – Peter James – Jeff Lindsay

Kathy Reichs – Val McDermid – Mark Billingham – Stuart McBride – Harlan Coben

Also available on the Million for a Morgue website, The Killer Cookbook (pictured left), quite possibly the perfect Christmas present for the crime fiction lover and cook in your life.

All proceeds go to the Million for a Morgue Campaign
