What I'm reading

I just finished a trilogy set in between the World Wars by mystery writer Rennie Airth, and decided to do a quick rendition of the cover of the third to accompany my review of his books on my library's blog. Here is the watercolor below, and you can go here to read the review, if you like. It was a good series! Lettering is always an interesting undertaking--the tag line underneath was supposed to read "A JOHN MADDEN MYSTERY SET IN WORLD WAR II ENGLAND" and though I thought I was being proportionate in my rendition of the cover, I had to both omit and abbreviate to fit in what I did!
