You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #198

- 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
Find You in the Dark is the debut thriller from Nathan Ripley. Surprise! It's on my TBR list. "Martin Reese is an average guy who just happens to be obsessed with digging up the undiscovered remains of serial killer victims." Well, with that line from a publisher's description, the dark, ominous colours, tones and images see to capture the feel of the book. For me this week it comes down to which image I prefer. I do like the dark woods and dark figure in the US cover. And the title font peeking out from behind the trees is clever. But I think I prefer the more graphic image of the bloody shovel in the UK version. And the tagline is clever..."There's a villain in every hero. You just need to dig a little." So, UK for me this week. Which cover do you prefer? And plans to read Find You in the Dark?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I agree. The shovel seems more menacing and it's hard at first to even see that the US cover is populated by trees. ;-)

I think they're both pretty good this week but I prefer the US cover.

It looks like US is the favorite this week!
