This illustration appeared (in an altered format) on the cover of Ed McBain's 87th Precinct novel, Jigsaw, Signet Books, 1970.
"At first it looked like a nice, neat double homicide -- until detective Arthur Brown discovers that the odd-shaped snapshot found clutched in a dead man's hand is a piece of a deadly puzzle worth a suitcase full of stolen cash. The men of the 87th have to find the other seven pieces --fast -- and as the stiffs pile up, they realize they are competing with a determined expert at the game of murder."
From the Estate of Charles Martignette.
