I think I used to have that along with other early Bantams. Never intended to read it. I liked the old Popular Library the best.

I like the covers of the Popular Library books a lot. That woman on the Bantam cover has her hand in a strangely awkward position, it seems to me.

Is she slicing up a watermelon?

It's not a watermelon, but I don't know what it is.

And she is apparently left-handed. I will say that if wills lead to as many murders in reality as they do in fiction, fewer people would write wills.

Looks like she's sticking the knife into the bottom of some small electrical appliance...hence her flirting with death?...but there's Nothing about that packaging that says anyone at Bantam has read the book.

A toaster for thin bread? Or maybe just an ugly knife rack.

Unknown said...

You win, Cap'n Bob.It' a pretentious knife rack and whoops, that's the murderer in the background...Collins should have complained.
