A Death in Belmont

That's the palm of a hand. What's it got to do with this book? Junger's parents hired Albert DeSalvo, the alleged Boston Strangler, as a builder when he was an infant.

What a great concept (this cover, of course; not strangling people).

I actually worked on the initial round for this title. The publisher killed the project because Sebastian had his own designer he wanted to work with. I like the concep of the hand. I used women's stockings, which is what was used in the murder. It's very interesting book.

Strangling people is so five minutes ago (just joking)

What do you think of the final cover Charles Brock?

i'm the one who designed this particular cover. after you read the book, you should be able to see why the cover is what it is. i've posted a bit about it on my own blog if you want to check it out.
