Love the Barye Phillips cover. I'm a huge Shell Scott fan - some of the books have great covers including Strip for Murder. Is there one artist most associated with the Shell Scott covers?

Wow, those two covers give completely different impressions about what is going to be found inside the covers of the book. Have you read this one?
