Strike a Match - cover theme

I was browsing the crime ebooks last night and spotted these two on the same page. The cover on the left was used in 2008 (Xlibris) and the one on the right (Little, Brown) is out next month.

Both covers are okay, a bit different actually, but I can't read the words under the flame on the rightside cover.

Karen - How do you do it? Those covers look separated at birth : ).

I do like the cover on the left better but I love the author Val McDermid so I'll probably read the book on the right first. I hear Val's new book is a stand alone. Are you going to be doing a review of it?

I don't know if you were interested or knew this, but there was a children's TV show, Are You Afraid of the Dark? that had the same motif with the black background and lit match. Inspiration?
