And a Sixth: Footsteps in the Night

Last month, when Killer Covers celebrated its fifth anniversary, I posted here five different vintage book fronts that had caught my attention. To hit that number perfectly, of course, it was necessary to toss out a few other options I liked almost as well. The best of those was this 1962 Permabooks paperback edition of Footsteps in the Night, by Dolores Hitchens (a work that had been released in hardcover by Crime Club/Doubleday a year earlier). Rather than let that cover gather dust, I’m posting it today. The illustration on Footsteps’ front was done by the great Harry Bennett.
