Joe Meno, The Boy Detective Fails: First learned of this writer here. How could you not want to know what happens in this book?
Heather McRobie, Psalm 119: Sunbathing tourist rudely disturbed by exploding city. I'm sold.
Lionel Davidson, The Night of Wenceslas: Saw the cover (click for bigger version) in a second-hand book shop. Thought, 'That's got to be a Romek Marber!'. It was. Saw the author, one of whose other books I loved years ago. Had to have.
Sadegh Hedayat, The Blind Owl: I like owls. (As an aside, though, I notice that Oneworld Classics' original claim that each of their books would have an extensive section of photos, background info, etc, seems to have gone by the wayside, the nifty French flaps of their covers have disappeared, and the cover stock now looks and feels more like something on a POD book. Still, they publish some great stuff.)
Gwyn Griffin, Sons of God: Have never heard of this chap, but how about that Ralph Steadman cover (click for bigger version)? And the book is about a seedy police superintendent in a soon-to-be-independent British colony in Africa who gets mixed up in unwise political, romantic and social entanglements. Like George Orwell mixed with Graham Greene, it says here. That's my cup of tea.
