The Four Days of Grofield Day Four: Lemons Never Lie

Donald Westlake gave up the genre experimentation of the first three Alan Grofield novels in favor of just writing a Richard Stark novel for volume four. Thank goodness–it’s easily the best of the series.

I was critical of this one when these covers were first made public, but in retrospect I think I was a little harsh.

This cover is only for the e-book at the moment, as Hard Case Crime still has the dead tree rights. And while it means you won’t get a nice matching set If You Buy Now in hard copy, you will get R. B. Farrell’s superb cover art as a consolation. This is one of my favorite Stark covers.
