He'll Be Dead By Morning

One of my more crazy faux-vintage paperback book covers, this one started life with just the portrait of the gun-totin' babe and it somehow found its way to this Mondrian-inspired crazy quilt design.

When searching for an actual book title, I knew I wanted to keep the idea that the woman is the protagonist, maybe even an assassin (which was not typically a plot you'd find in a 40s or 50s paperback). I found a book called She'll Be Dead By Morning, and I was content to remove the "S" to make it a little more appropriate to what I had already conceived. The author and tagline remained the same.
