Thanks to my dear friend, the great author Joe Perrone, Jr., I did a bit more work. He suggested using a three-dimensional gold typeface, which I think works great for this cover. Here are a couple of more entries. Your opinions would be helpful. I'm not sure which typeface I prefer. And, I've decided to nix the ankh. Just too many elements if I include it.

I would love your opinions and your input on these. A big thanks to Joe. Check out his books on Amazon. He's a great mystery writer!
