In Death Quote Challenge!

Quote Challenge Rules!

Please be advised, this forum Will Contain Spoilers!!

The rules are simple...

You must be a REGISTERED USER to play this game!

Post a quote from any In Death book or story that has been available in paperback for at least 3 months.

NO HARDCOVER BOOKS!

Please see pinned topic "Available Books" for the books that can be used.

The others have to guess which book it's from. To keep it fair, you'd have to post the title AND page number of the book OR the title and a complete description of the scene (see below). Once you are confirmed as the winner, you get to post the next quote.

The Nitty-Gritty Rules of the Quote Challenge:
 

  • a quote must be identified within three days or a new quote will be posted by the same person
    • If there are no answers to a quote within 24 hours, you have to add at least one more line to the quote, or otherwise elaborate on the quote...give a hint.
    • You are allowed to give as many hints or add as much to the quote as necessary within the next 24 hours until someone guesses the quote or until the three-day limit expires and a new quote must be posted.
    • After three days, the member who posted the quote or a moderator will declare the quote "open," and at that time, ANYONE (including those ineligible) can identify the quote and win that round.
  • a new quote must be posted within three days by the person who identified the previous quote, and if not, the person who posted the last quote posts again
  • You must wait TWO turns to play again after you win, UNLESS a quote has been unidentified in three days, after that, it's up for grabs by anyone.
  • Books available only in hardcover cannot be used.
  • Once a hardcover title is released in paperback, you must wait three months before using a quote from that book. All dates refer to US release dates.
  • Winning guess names the book and the page number OR fully describes the scene--who, what, where, when. Anything that happens in every book-- "Eve talking to Feeney" isn't good enough, even though it may identify who is speaking in the quote. "Eve is talking to Feeney in her office after she had monkey sex with Roarke in the kitchen" or "Eve is talking to Feeney in his office at Cop Central after they found the suspect's off-shore bank account." Give as much detail as you can about what is happening before, after or during the quote.

Please remember that using a search feature to find the answer...either on the forum, in other quote challenges, on the Wiki, on the web or in an electronic book is really not fair. Please do not find the answer this way.
