Friday Face Off: Death of a Red Heroine

Friday Face Off

The Friday Face-Off was originally created by Books by Proxy:
each Friday, bloggers showcase book covers on a weekly theme.
Visit Lynn’s Books (@LynnsBooks) for a list of upcoming themes.
Please visit also Tammy at Books, Bones & Buffy (@tammy_sparks)
thanks to whom I discovered this meme.

This year, there’s no weekly theme, you just choose a book you have recently read.
I just finished an excellent historical mystery set in China, and luckily for us, it has many editions and book covers.

Friday Face off Death of a Red Heroine

My favorite cover is the Soho paperback edition.
Red in the title simply refers to a member of the Communist party, so choosing red as the clothes makes more sense than the choice of red for lips for instance, on another cover.
Plus, I like the position of the heroine on that first cover, implying a sense of secrecy – at least to me, it looks like she’s hiding behind a door maybe? And that works with the plot.
If you want to read more about this excellent book, come this way to read my enthusiastic review.

Have you read this book?
Not sure about my next participation,
all depends on how my next reads will qualify
