Thrift Shop Book Covers: "Avalanche Express"

Avalanche Express, by Colin Forbes, was originally published as a hardcover by E. P. Dutton & Co. in 1977, the edition that caught my eye is Fawcett Crest mass market paperback published in 1979. It is the movie tie-in edition for the film directed by Mark Robson, starring Lee Marvis and Robert Shaw. The artist: Unknown (to me at least)

The first sentence:

It was a Wednesday—dangerous Wednesday—and as always the first Wednesday in the month.
Colin Forbes is a pseudonym for the late-Raymond Harold Sawkins (1923 – 2006). A British writer of adventure novels similar in tone and style to Alistair MacLean.
