I am pleased this image has finally been chosen to grace the cover of a book. I took a liking to this gravestone (yes it is a gravestone) while on location in Malta a number of years ago while walking around the largest cemetery I have ever been to! I have a number of different versions of it as it really caught my eye. I was the one who added the texture and blood (obviously) and the designer has then added the landscape below to add to the narrative of the story itself - which is very common.
