What a superb cover! The girl is looking directly at the viewer as if she expects help from you. The man’s face is hidden, which makes him even more insidious. The lighting is coming from the upper left which puts her shadowed face in the foreground, a reversal of normal composition. And the hand! Ah, the hand!

Update (09/2/2013): This 2nd printing came out in 1968.
