I am not a cover designer but I can agree that cover layouts play an important role in the overall presentation of stories and I must admit, often times I first judge a book by its cover.
The Man From St Petersburg by Ken Follett
Paperback, 464 pages
Published June 11th 2011 by Pan Books (first published April 1st 1982)
His name was Feliks. He came to London to commit a murder that would change history. A master manipulator, he had many weapons at his command, but against him were ranged the whole of the English police, a brilliant and powerful lord, and the young Winston Churchill himself.

I love this updated cover of The Man From St Petersburg! I’m trying to remember if I have read the story. I’ve added it to my wish-list and I will admit, the cover plays a big role in me wanting to read the story.
