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