Recent Publisher Weekly issue has a feature on nine "First-Time Whodunits." I found myself intrigued by the inclusion of "Body Count" as a review feature point. Not the first time it has been done, but I am curious. Do you think this information will draw readers to your work, is an important feature in a review or just a tantalizing teaser appealing to a certain sort such as ourselves perhaps?

For one of the books, and one only, they got quite specific and broke down how the "body counts" were accrued. The book did have by far the highest total but what an odd thing to detail out. In another they actually tell you how a person is killed. But this same review also included a "Hollywood Pitch" so you have to consider the source...
