Description

Paris trembles. In the past two months, fifteen people have been killed by poisoned darts…and all witnesses saw was a blowgun and a feathered shadow.

The job of capturing the flamboyant assassin is entrusted to Jerome K. Jerome Bloche. Wearing an old trenchcoat and his indispensable felt hat, the endearingly clumsy twenty-year-old tries to look the part of a seasoned private eye. By day he translates detective novels and fantasizes about being one. Scooting around Paris on his trusty motorized bicycle and carrying his latest lesson in a correspondence course for would-be detectives—Jerome seems, however, more Will Ferrell than Humphrey Bogart.

Luckily for Jerome, he is sometimes aided by his girlfriend Babette, a flight attendant who brings him recordings from around the world for his collection of police sirens.

Jerome K. Jerome Bloche has thrilled European readers since 1982 and has been collected in twenty-five graphic novels that have been translated into eleven languages…and now—finally—presented in English for the first time!
