In a not-so-distant future where society has changed considerably - but where problems remain the same - a young policewoman from Paris is dragged into a difficult, dangerous investigation that could affect the very future of humankind

Paris, end of the 21st Century. Inspector Romane Pennac is the only white woman in her station. The world has suffered devastating wars and ecological disasters, and the old powers of Europe and America are now the third world. Yet it is toward the young woman, now a member of a discriminated-against minority, that a couple of devastated parents turn. A mysterious letter has just announced to them that the body of their daughter, recently deceased in New York, isn’t in her coffin ...


Key Points
  • Published in English for the first time
  • The fertile imagination of the creator of Aldebaran applied to Earth at the end of this century
  • An unusual main character, product of a world that turns the established social tropes on their head and offers an intriguing commentary on racism and privilege
  • A story which raises strong ethical questions about humanity's ability to coexist with nature

Brazilian artist Leo is best known for his science-fiction, multi-series saga The Worlds of Aldebaran. He also created Canadian Mountie Trent as well as Kenya and its second season Namibia, all three with Rodolphe. Belgian author Corine Jamar has written children’s books, novels, and several BDs such as Les Filles d’Aphrodite. Fred Simon is a long time comics fan and professional artist; among his series are adaptations of Jack London’s Call of the Wild and Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island.
