Thrift Shop Book Covers: "Gulf Stream"

Gulf Stream, by Cherokee Paul McDonald, was published as a paperback original by Popular Library in August 1988, which is the very edition that caught my eye. The cover art is wonderfully 1980s with vibrant pastels, pinks, greens and blues adding to a very Miami Vice feel. The artist: Ken Joudry.

The opening paragraph:
It was the face of the small boy that stayed with him.

Happy New Year, Ben! I'm with you on the cover art of 1980s paperbacks, all very colourful.
