Month of McGinnis: “24 Hours to Kill”

Part of a month-long celebration of Robert McGinnis’ book covers.

24 Hours to Kill, by James McKimmey (Dell, 1961).

McKimmey (1923-2011) was fortunate in having at least two of his paperbacks illustrated by Robert McGinnis. The other one I’m thinking of is The Wrong Ones, which I showcased earlier in this series. Art Scott, the co-author--with McGinnis--of the forthcoming book The Art of Robert E. McGinnis (Titan), remarked to me recently that “24 Hours to Kill gives off a manifest post-coital vibe! I'm surprised Dell let it go. Among the hundreds of sexy women on McGinnis covers this one ratchets up the sex a notch, or two.”
