Being asked to illustrate book jackets is always great… well, because then I get to read the story first. Awesome. And when Fox Spirit were kind enough to send a copy of Graham Wynd’s – Kate Laity’s, ahem – ‘Extricate’ novel my way, with the promise of kinky-crime-noir, well, who could say no?
Extricate is a violent tale of sexual obsession, unfolding on the dark streets of a nowhere town. Peter falls for Judy the instant he lights her cigarette, but she’s his best mate’s girl — and he’s already married. He decides to begin removing obstacles — starting with his wife. How far will he be willing to go? How far does lifelong friendship go when he finally meets the woman of his peculiar dreams?
So a sizzling tale of crime, intrigue and sexual tension calls for the some hot dames courtesy of the wonderful world of pulp fiction. And with such a great legacy of visual art to call upon – Pulp Covers has a particularly cool selection – we ended up with one of these…
Edited by the very foxy Adele Wearing, find out more about this sexy little number over at Fox Spirit Books! And if you’d like some more of the very talented Graham Wynd to read, you should really say hello to the mighty Ms Kate Laity!
