BRIEF: Drop Day is a crime thriller novel, written by Lee Hayes. I was given a brief to design the front cover for Kindle eBook and a hard copy in the future, based on the basic plot as it was being written:
‘Told from the killers perspective, this is a tale of murder, love and fast paced action that will have you gripping your kindle tightly.
“On the fourteenth day of every other month, Kaylan Mancini executes a morbid, habitual act.”
One bloody female sacrifice, put on spectacular public display, drives two overworked detectives, Sylvia Vasquez and Michael Blackman, slaving late into the night, trying to unravel the serial killer’s demons, and decipher the reasoning behind the regular clockwork kills.
A stream of media-hungry copycat killers and unsavoury characters become fatalities of an inventive fashion, after they clutter Kaylan’s gruesome path.’
