You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #55

- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true. 
 But you can like one cover version better than another...

US cover
UK cover
Linda Fairstein's new book, Devil's Bridge, releases in August. And it's on my TBR list - I quite like the New York history she weaves into her crime novels. (This is the 17th in the Alex Cooper series) The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. I'm torn this week, but I'm going with the UK cover. The US is a realistic shot, bright and catches your eye. But I like the ominous look of the UK cover. Have you read this series before? Which cover do you prefer?
 You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular Saturday feature

I think I like the UK cover best too - the colors on the US cover are a bit much.

I've only read one book in this series and have always meant to get back to it. I know several people who really love it. As to the covers, well, I'll go with UK cover as well. Although I do wish it was more of a gray-blue or something besides purple. The US cover is kind of startling - too bright?

I agree with you, the UK cover is darker & foreboding. It draws me to it, daring me to pick it up & begin reading.
