Interestingly, the book, which was a top bestselling crime/thriller title on Amazon Germany in 2007, hasn't yet been released in the United Kingdom or the United States - but hopefully that will be corrected by Cleave's publishers in the near future. I understand it has also been signed up for release in Taiwan in recent times, but I haven't yet seen a cover for that version. Here are the other nine covers thusfar for the various versions of THE CLEANER:
The above nine covers are for the:
- New Zealand version (top left);
- Australian version (top middle);
- German version (top right);
- Russian version (middle left);
- French Sonatine version (centre);
- French version (middle right);
- Czech version (bottom left);
- Japanese version (bottom middle);
- Turkish version (bottom left).
I tell you what; if you leave a comment, noting your favourite cover(s) and the reasons why it's your pick, then you will go into the draw to win a copy of Cleave's novel - in the language of your choice (I may have to pull a few strings, but oh well). Might as well run Crime Watch's first giveaway of 2011, eh? Draw will be made the end of next week. Spread the word.
I look forward to reading your opinions.
