Title: Case of the Cold Coquette
Author: Jonathan Craig
Cover artist: George Mayers
Yours for: $11
Best things about this cover:
- Cold? Maybe if she put her shirt back on …
- Oh, *that* kind of iceberg. The ones that are beautiful and are thawed by money. I was thinking of the ones that are made of ice and float in the ocean and are thawed by the rays of the sun. But I get it now. Good analogy.
- If you're looking for your right shoe, lady, it's under the bench … there … toward your left … no, not in the corner—down … straight down … are you even trying?
- Seriously, what is she doing? Some kind of weird half-naked bench yoga?
Best things about this back cover:
- "I'm a cop." Original!
- Champagne tastes … but caviar guts-on-the-track!
- We get it. Cold, thaw, etc. Give the metaphor a rest; I think it's tired.
- I always say, the best leads are succulent leads. Like aloe. A great lead, aloe.
