My guess for victim (submitted for team MbD / TA / Lillelara):



Task: Read a book set in an imaginary place.

In the case of this book it´s set in different fairytale worlds.
For round 6 I would like to play a victim card:

To play Ariandne Oliver card, I read "Deadly in High Heels (High Heels #9)" by Gemma Halliday, fulfilling the requirement of "book written by a woman or with a woman P.I. or detective".
Way to good on someone getting the suspect..
Victim Card Guess - Team MbD / Lillelara / TA:



Since Agatha Christie has recently been observed visiting Scotland Yard (and we know she's not the suspect), I think it just might be possible she's been asked to identify one of the victims as Mrs. Oliver. Of course, the identification might have come out as a negative, but then again ... it might not.

So I (too) am going with this as a victim guess, with Ms. Christie's own One, Two, Buckle My Shoe, which I just finished listening to, and which happily fulfills all three tasks of this particular card.

The Green Game has solved it's first crime!

Victim: Samwise Gamgee
Cause of Death: beaten in a dark alley
Crime scene: Gryffindor Common Room

Poor Samwise!
My guess for cause of death (submitted for team MbD / TA / Lillelara):



Task: Read a historical fiction novel and read a book by an Englisch woman author.
I'm going to use the wild card option for my read of To Kill a Mockingbird, and apply it to the card Victim: The Gunslinger.
... and another victim card guess for Team MbD / Lillelara / TA:



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".

KYD Green Round: Victim Card Guess - Team MbD / Lillelara / TA:



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.
My guess is going to be for COD: Stabbed with a Sword, for which I read One Corpse Too Many. It meets the criteria for middle ages, and set during a war, as well as having the word "sword" used multiple times throughout the text.
Round 8:

Debbie: pass

Team TML:
Themis: Dr. John Watson (victim) - Yes
