Artwork of the Day: The Insiders (by Verne Tossey)


by Verne Tossey

This novel about Washington insiders and corruption was first published in 1958.  Washington corruption has obviously been a popular topic for a very long time.  It was written by Booth Money, which I’m assuming was a pseudonym.  Whether it’s real or not, it’s a great name for a writer.

The cover art is by Verne Tossey, who I profiled back in 2017.  It features a stereotypical corrupt pol (they’re always overweight and bald) and a woman who I assume is meant to be his mistress.  While talking on the phone, she’s holding a newspaper that features headline about the Senate investigating a lobbyist.  Influence is definitely about to be peddled in the shadow of the Capitol Dome!
