The Human Factor by Graham Greene is a Le Carré-esque story about the hunt for a double agent in the British intelligence service during the Cold War.
My cover represents the game of hide-and-seek that reoccurs throughout the story. I mean literally - the protagonist's young son loves the game, especially playing with his colleague Davis. Later in the novel, the protagonist hides in the same bushes where they've played, in a moment of crisis. Of course, there is the symbolic meaning of hide-and-seek, too.
When this idea popped into my head it had the look of a Monty Python's Flying Circus animation, which I was going for here...

Keep looking...
