Pick up this Penguin

Last week I linked to the artwork for the forthcoming US paperback of Free Agent from Penguin. Eagle-eyed reader 'Liam Devlin' spotted that the gun in that image was a modern Beretta, rather than the Cold War-era Tokarev featured in the novel (and on the UK hardback). This is something that was changed in the final version, but I couldn't figure out a way to get my PDF of it on here. Never mind - I found it over at the funky blog Book Covers Anonymous. You may spot a couple of other tiny things that have been changed from the previous version. The design is by the London-based designer Jonathan Gray, who works under the name Gray318, and has designed many fantastic book jackets. Here's what he came up with for mine - what do you think? I couldn't be more pleased, but perhaps I'm biased! Click the image to enlarge it.

New jacket required

I shared the UK paperback artwork for Free Agent - now it's time for the US cover art. It will be published on June 29, and all the details are in Penguin's summer 2010 catalogue, which can be found online here. I have a PDF of the final version of the jacket, but can't work out how to post that here. But the version in the catalogue is pretty much what it will look like, so here it is. Very different from the British cover, as you can see - but I really like this one, too. What do you think? Click to enlarge the picture for a closer look, and feel free to comment below.
