- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another....
I am a big fan of Val McDermid's Tony Hill and Carol Jordan crime series and am eagerly awaiting the the 11th book - How the Dead Speak. The US cover is on the left and the Canadian cover is on the right. I do like the US cover - the windy path in a distant field and those birds above. Vultures? It's a bit sedate. But I have to say that the Canadian cover just jumps off the page for me. That bright red speaks to danger and death. And the skull is deliciously creepy, promising an intriguing read. So, an easy choice for me this week - Canadian cover What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read How the Dead Speak?
