Duped: “The Sweetheart of the Razors”

This is the first installment in Killer Covers’ “haven’t we seen this front someplace before?” series. Later entries are here.

The illustration below shows the front of Peter Cheyney’s non-series novel, The Sweetheart of the Razors (originally titled The Curiosity of Etienne MacGregor, 1947). This 1962 paperback edition from UK publisher Four Square carries art by Robert Maguire ... which also just happened to appear on the façade of Thomas B. Dewey’s Dame in Danger (Signet, 1949). Check it out here.
