Quite an interesting cover this (from a design point of view)
The actual photograph was taken in an abandoned asylum. An amazing place with grand staircases and oak paneling walls ! That is before the scavengers arrive and strip these beautiful historic building apart ! The shadow was hand drawn in Photoshop.
What I do like is the shape into which the designer has incorporated the theme of the story. I bet by looking at this one design element they didn't realize the location was Wales, UK !
