Apart from their ages, there is only one other thing Lucas and Olivier have in common –a difficult relationship with a teenager.
Lucas is a former Israeli Army sniper living in Paris but he has a major problem –gambling. And to get himself out of debt he is forced into performing a task for the Russian Mafia…murder.
Olivier is a police mountain guide in Chamonix, just as his father was. However, Olivier is haunted by how, while they were tethered together, his father. Yet still he struggles on.
And in the snow-covered mountains these two men are brought together by fate. Will either of the men waver and will Lucas carry out the planned murder?
I like how Casterman have artists who use varying styles which means that you can pick up a bunch of their books but never see the same style twice. I’m completely unfamiliar with Douay’s work so I’ll need to go and see what I can find online.
My very poor French does let me down a little but the story seems well-paced and well-balanced/paced. The book is available to order from tomorrow.
