Friday Face-Off: A Favorite Thriller

  • by

Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy! Each Friday, we will pit cover against cover while also taking the opportunity to showcase gorgeous artwork and feature some of our favorite book covers. If you want to join the fun, simply choose a book each Friday that fits that week’s predetermined theme, post and compare two or more different covers available for that book, then name your favorite. A list of future weeks’ themes are available at Lynn’s Book Blog.

This week’s theme is:

~ a cover of a FAVORITE THRILLER

He Started It by Samantha Downing

I’ll never turn down a chance to feature Samantha Downing, who has become one of my favorite thriller authors in recent years. He Started It was a book that knocked me out for a loop, so I’d say it definitely counts as one of my favorite thrillers.

Let’s take a look at some of the covers:

From left to right:
Berkley (2020) – Michael Joseph (2020) – Thorndike Press Large Print (2020)

French Edition (2021) – Persian Edition (2020) – German Edition (2021)


The Berkley edition, definitely. Fiery car in the background, with a well-dressed lady in heels wielding a shovel…there’s something so badass about this image, and it certainly makes you wonder just what the hell is going on.

But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
