Fontana Cover Cavalcade

Digging around the internet in my hunt for covers for the Peter Cheyney (and, some while back, the Agatha Christie) cover gallery, I grabbed a few additional covers from various Fontana paperbacks. With luck and a good tail wind, I'll post a few of them over the next few days.

First up, four from Laurence Meynell, a prolific crime writer who also wrote children's books. There's a good biographical sketch about Meynell's career here and a list of his crime novels here should you want to find out more about him.
