Description
In "one of the most gloriously inventive and appealing [graphic novel] debuts in years" (Daily Telegraph), Hannah Berry combines a classic noir story in the Raymond Chandler vein with expressive monochromatic graphics reminiscent of the artwork in The Triplets of Belleville. Private Detective Fernández Britten—an old hand at confirming dark suspicions of jealous lovers—takes on the mysterious death of Berni Kudos; the official verdict is suicide, but Berni's fiancée believes otherwise. With his unconventional partner Brülightly—and we wouldn't dream of telling you why Brülightly is so unusual—Britten turns up blackmail, revenge, murder, and painful family secrets.

"A beautifully executed affair, moody and mysterious in tone. What stands out is its resonant portrayal of a man in a mid-life crisis, seeking Truth while drowning in an ocean of deceit…. Satisfying on an emotional level that transcends genre and take son philosophical textures."—Time Out London

"Berry's impressive graphic novel debut—published to much praise last year in Great Britain—mixes classic noir, a timeless story of love and loss and a shot of black humor with gloomy 1940s London as the perfect backdrop."—Publishers Weekly
