Dead Eyes looks like a psychological drama. And creepy...

It's got to be Skullduggery (Hey that rhymes!)

Tom Percivals Skullduggery covers are constantly great, a fine illistrator.

The toughest round ever! Very hard to choose, but had to plump for Mr Jobling in the end, after harping on about him on Twitter!

Book Cover 4 - Wereworld - by Jobling. Visually marketable and memorable; really nice colour work and the image would look equally good on a game or other merchandise.
