Well, we haven’t seen this cover before. I’m a sucker for reflections and objects seen indirectly or through glass, so this cover manages to be better than its tiny artwork would otherwise suggest. Let’s see, it’s called Dead Low Tide and we definitely have low tide and that’s indisputably a dead body in the upper right, so all plot elements are covered. Then there’s a photo of a dead girl outside the glass jar and another photo of a dead girl inside the jar. Wait a minute! The girl inside of the jar is actually coming off the photo like an Escher drawing. And why did she die while lying in a languorous pose on a sofa? Oh, perhaps she isn’t dead; maybe she’s … well , this is a family blog.
