A savage noir thriller reuniting a superlative French cartoonist with a master crime novelist.  An aimless young executive and desultory family man witnesses a murder and gets sucked into a spiral of violence involving an exiled war criminal and two hitmen.  "Tardi brings a rough and gritty reality and an existential strangeness that makes his crime stories different than anyone else's." - Ed Brubaker (Criminal); "To put it simply, this s*** kicks ass." - Howard Chaykin


Description of excerpt: The two killers close in on our protagonist as he grudgingly takes his family to the seaside.
