Welcome to the Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy. Join us every Friday as we pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in the literary universe.  If you want to join us next week, check out next week’s predetermined theme, choose a book, compare two or more different covers available for that book, then name your favorite. A list of future weeks’ themes are available at Lynn’s Book Blog

This week’s theme is:

“He sounded like a man who had slept well and didn’t owe too much money.” – A cover that is ‘noir’!

Another week, another struggle for me.  No SFF titles which I could recall were noir, so I feel back on another genre which I’m not very familiar with.

A tie!  Mainly because I didn’t want to pick between these three covers since I liked all of them.

So, do you agree with my picks?  Disagree?  Love all the covers?  Hate them all?  Let us know!

    Great pick – Stephen King is winning out this week. I love the third cover from your picks – it feels so spot on for the theme.

    I think the toe-tag cover captured Noir the best, but your first left and middle picks did, too. Your third pick was more James Bond in style, to me.
