Judging books by their covers

I've said before that I am a fool for good cover art. Whether it be books or CDs, I will fall for a well presented visual display. There is a new line of mysteries that resurrects the lurid, pulpy style of the 1950s. Check out some examples, here, here and here. There are already some big names playing ball, but the biggest is definately Stephen King. Pity the book is apparently crap. The Washington Post reviewer calls the book a "whydunit." So, if you like the cool covers, you might want to start elsewhere.
