Book Cover Appreciation: Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty

Cover by Kirk Benshoff

Let’s just be brutally honest for a second: This cover is too good for this book. You could even say that this is an example of a good cover working against the story.

The image is of a body floating through space, promising murder, intrigue, and tension. While there is that in the book, there’s no body floating in space in the actual narrative. But this isn’t a book review. I’m not here to gripe about the story, I’m here to compliment some good design. The image is so engaging that it deserves to be appreciated.

Kudos to Kirk Benshoff!
