KYD Green Round: Crime Scene Card Guess - Team MbD / Lillelara / TA
Imperium - Robert Harris

 

Robert Harris's Imperium has white lettering (and the lower part of the cover is black).  In addition, the holders of Ancient Rome's public offices -- including this book's protagonist, Marcus Tullius Cicero -- had to organize a variety of games to entertain the citizens, so the words "game" and "games" appear repeatedly throughout the text.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - J.K. Rowling,Stephen Fry

 

Maycomb County Courthouse: the crime scene that would fit most obviously with our game's murderer (and unlike her own characters as victims, it's not off limits to her per se).

 

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is genre YA and features two characters who are fathers -- Mr. Weasley and Mr. Diggory (plus an honorary third one, Sirius Black).  In addition, Hermione embarks on a campaign of "justice for house elves."

KYD Green Round: Victim Card Guess - Team MbD / Lillelara / TA
A Red Death: An Easy Rawlins Mystery - Walter Mosley,Michael Boatman

 

Well, we still have one victim to guess and since it's the victim of the very first murder it can't be Katniss Everdene (the only other theoretically remaining option), since she was expressly excluded in the game's first round.

 

Walter Mosley's Red Death, which I finished a few days ago, is genre crime fiction; in addition, its author's first name begins with one of the letters in WATSON.

KYD Green Round: Victim Card Guess - Team MbD / Lillelara / TA
The Red Queen - Margaret Drabble

 

Lydia Bennet can't possibly die too many literary deaths, so I kind of hope she's a victim in our round as well.  (Mean streak -- me?)

 

Margaret Drabble's The Red Queen contains an extremely annoying POV character in its second part -- who also happens to do more than her fair share of stupid things -- in addition to which, the author's last name begins with one of the letters in "Lydia".
