Normally, I like the Dutch covers, but not this one. Yeah, sure, the blood splatter motif is fine, but the man just doesn’t scare me. I realize that not everyone can be Robert Mitchum, but c’mon! “Ooo, that silk necktie looks deadly, mister!” And my scan is pretty miserable so I can’t be certain, but it sure looks like he’s holding the world’s smallest slingshot in a very threatening way.
