Visual assault

This is a novel, Where Have All the Mothers Gone? by David Olson. I have no idea what it's about. In order to find that out I'll need to actually read it. In any event, the cover artwork is really bad. A toddler raises his arm towards an evil looking man who bares an almost uncanny resemblance to the late actor John Colicos (1928-2000). Among his many credits, Colicos appeared as the villainous Baltar in the original 1978 series of Battlestar Galactica. Were it still possible, the only thing this book needs is an audio version read by Lorne Greene, sadly also now deceased. Patrick Macnee, who guest starred as Count Iblis in this series, is still alive, however.
