Normally I would call this a photo cover, because … uh … there’s a photo on the cover, but I simply must give credit to the unkown artist who drew the dead body in the yellow box. I hope he has graduated from kindergarten. I mean, what goes on during the cover design meetings?

“Well, Gunther, that’s a bitchin’ photo of a truly böser fraulein, and I really like the way you have obscured most of her face with the title, but the cover is is missing something. How will the reader know that this is a mystery?”

Mein Gott, sir! Why do you do this to me? The book says ‘kriminal’ on it! “Böser means ‘evil’! It’s by John D. Fricken MacDonald!”

“Hmm…I don’t know. You’d better draw a dead body on her forehead.”

“Why don’t I highlight it in yellow so even a dunderkopf can’t miss it?”

“Hey, good idea.”
