Friday Face-Off – 20th August 2021

The Friday Face-Off is a meme originally created by Books by Proxy and now hosted over at Lynn’s Books. The idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.

This week’s Friday Face-Off theme is a cover that is dressed to kill – either portraying murder or someone well-dressed: “That night, in the dark, dressed to kill, I lost my life.” For this week’s theme I’ve picked Jeff Lindsay’s Darkly Dreaming Dexter.

And the winner is… COVER C!

This one is a simple cover, yet highly effective. The mostly monochrome style only enhances the deep bloodstain on the glass slide, another iconic symbol of the series.

What are your thoughts? Do you agree with my winner, or does one of the others work better for you? Let me know in the comments!

Next week’s theme is a cover that features a beach: “On an island in the sun, we’ll be playin’ an’ havin’ fun. And it makes me feel so fine, I can’t control my brain.”
