Reviews and News about British, European and Translated crime fiction, tv and film.
I must say that I find the current phase of lookalike book cover images... annoying. That said, I used to work as an image librarian and so can vouch that image requests clustered (with same images being requested by different users) on a regular basis. Maybe some kind of zeitgeist thing? Or simply fashion. But it seems exaggerated at the moment. Perhaps it also says something about the increasingly corporate structure of today's publishing industry?
I think they are too, Karen. There's even a similar sort of emptiness in the sky in both covers.
