Just based on the cover I would guess that it's a thriller / gritty crime drama. I like this cover with good simple contrast of good old black text on a white background. Then there is just the spot of color from the red dice. I'm not 100% sure that I like all the extra scroll work around the lettering. There seems to be an excess between the R and O.
Crime thriller, possibly involving street gangs or bikers. It looks nice, but I think the title should be a little higher up.And I hate to nit-pick, but "die" is singular but the picture is of two dice.
I'm guessing murder mystery, and the title is a play on 'die' as in be dead. All the wispy stuff around the title in distracting, but the black and white looks good with just the splash of red. I'm a murder mystery fan, so I'd pick this up.
I don't care for all the scroll work in the title. Some would be okay, but I think there's too much. It makes it hard to make out the title.Otherwise, I think this is really good. I like the black on white with the red dice. And I like the border so that it will have defined edges when displayed on a white background.I would pick this one up and read the description. Good job.
I'm guessing murder mystery at a tattoo parlor or possibly, a gang of gambling bikers' murder mystery.The splotches of ink around the lettering is artsy but a little distracting. I'm torn about it. I think I agree with the others. It probably should be toned down.
Definitely mystery, but I'm with the others. I don't really like the scrollwork on the lettering. That being said, I'd still pick this one up.
I would definitely pick this up. Love the little skull dotting the i!
The grunge-style frame, the curlicues, the cartoony dice, and the skull (the curly bits make it look like it's having a bad hair day) make me think this is a mystery involving gambling, with a twist of dark comedy, with the chance of paranormal activity. The typography looks a little busy, but it's easy to read even at thumbnail size. I'd probably pick it up and at least read the blurb.
