Which crime writer would you like to see immortalized? Maybe you are a Val McDermid fan or you read Lee Child, Jeffery Deaver or Jeff Lindsay. Or perhaps Stuart MacBride, Tess Gerritsen or Kathy Reichs gets your heart pounding. Of course there is also Mark Bellingham, Peter James or Harlan Coben. Sure all ten of these authors turn out terrific fiction, but only one will have the distinction of having a morgue named after them.
You read that right — based on fan voting, one of these authors will be commemorated by having the morgue at the University of Dundee's Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID) named in their honor. Readers can participate by logging onto www.millionforamorgue.com to vote for whichever author they feel deserves the recognition. Every vote costs a pound (equal to about $1.60) and all of the money will go towards building a brand new, state-of-the-art morgue.
