Stop! You're Killing Me!: Mystery Cover of the Week

If I love anything, it's a bad pun and kitchy art. Hence my choice for the first Mystery Cover of the Week. "Malice in Wonderland" mashes our beloved mystery genre with a beloved children's tale (albeit, a drug addled one), and it then sets it against a classic scene of Motel Americana AND switches coconuts out with skulls?! Phew! Yes Please!

The whole delicious concoction is topped off with this opening line:

"When Alice Wickershield was a little girl of nine and still believed in all the childhood wonderlands with their fantasy inhabitants, she was given a birthday party by an old woman whom she firmly considered to be a witch."

Don't think you can live without this beautiful piece? Shoot us an email, and we'll see what we can do for you....
