Thrift Shop Book Covers: "The Man Who Made the Devil Glad"

The Man Who Made the Devil Glad, by Donald McCaig, was published as a hardcover by Crown Publishers in 1986. The edition that caught my eye is the mass market paperback published by St. Martin’s Press in 1987. The cover illustration is—well, take a look. It’s something special with a montage of secret love, car chases, and a tough looking cop who sees everything. The artist: Unknown (to me at least).

The first lines:

When he woke, it was dark except for a dim red light down the corridor. H ached like he’d been run through with a hammer mill.
