Not every cover of The Only Girl in the Game uses a gambling motif, but you can’t prove it by this cover. Roulette, dice, and slot machines are the games of choice and sure enough, here we have slots. At least this one lets you know that the wages of gambling are death … uh, is death … no, are death … thanks to the skulls that have lined up in the machine’s windows. Just in case you thought John D MacDonald might write a story where somebody does something bad and gets away with that. Wouldn’t want that. It ain’t fittin’.
