Artwork of the Day: Nice Fillies Finish Last (by Robert McGinnis)


by Robert McGinnis

I’ve always loved horses.  When I was growing up, no matter where we were living, I always searched for the nearest horse farm.  Horses are wonderful creatures and I’ve always enjoyed riding them but I don’t think I would ever recommend trying to ride a horse while wearing a bikini and smoking a cigarette.  Regardless of how nice the filly is, it’s a bad idea.

This book was originally published in 1966 and it was one of the many, many books to deal with the adventures private investigator Mike Shayne.  Though the book is credited to Shayne’s creator, Brett Halliday, Halliday actually retired from writing in 1958.  All subsequent Shayne books, including this one, were authored by a ghost writer.

Like many of the Shayne books, the cover was done by the legendary Robert McGinnis.  We’ve featured many McGinnis covers in the past and we’ll feature many more in the future.
