Title: Death Wears a Bridal Veil
Author: Kathleen Moore Knight
Cover artist: Uncredited

Best things about this cover:

  • Oh no, they flattened that poor pig! And on her wedding day!
  • Apparently rationing during war time extended to hyphens. Sorry "Full" and "Length," no touching.

Back cover just has "A Detective Novel Classic" stamped all over it, so ... moving on ...

Page 123~

Under the bedclothes Phyllis' hands clinched as she fought for courage.

You can do it, Phyllis! Just lie back and think of England!

Who'd've thought Death was a levitating chintzy pink cushion with tassels!

Don't worry, Phyllis, we don't mind you clinching, just so long as it's only your hands you've got clinched, (although, come to think of it...); and if they're clinched around some part of your bloke's anatomy it isn't his throat, (although, come to think of it...).', ye', think of England as you lie back, baby...

By the way, I'm English: did y'know that, Phyllis - baby? Me? English!

Phyllis? Phyllis? Phyllis?

At first glance, that bridal veil looked more like a jellyfish to me. What an awful, boring cover.
