A Death in Pilsen by Robert Goldsborough

The cover I'm writing about is for my recently published mystery novel A DEATH IN PILSEN, which is the third in my "Snap"Malek Chicago historical mystery series.

I did not design the cover, nor did my publisher. It was
done by Nathalie Moore, who creates many of Echelon's
covers. I did not have any initial input on the cover,
although it was run by me for approval, which I gave with
unconditional enthusiasm. I love the treatment, because to
me it captures the Noir mood of my story, which is set in
1940s Chicago. I particularly like the stark black-and-white
effect, with the accented use of red on the murder knife.
