I swiped this from Paul Bishop's blog. I don't know who the artist is, but it's now one of my favorite crime pulp covers ever! Not only is that fantastic painting dynamic, but the cover copy may have just given me the name for a future Femme Noir villainess - "Lady Loot!"

It's a painting by the ever-popular Norman Saunders from December 1939. He sure knew how to paint 'em.

Doh! Yeah, I'm familiar with Suanders' style - I should I have recognized it. Thanks.
