Adopted daughter and principal collaborator of James Fitzroy, roving ambassador, special correspondent for the American Secretary of State in Europe, Susan is a clever, multilingual young woman, in full bloom and perfectly happy in the eyes of an attentive father. But this too-perfect happiness hides many faults, sorrows and mysteries. Trapped by her past, Susan will have to play her most dangerous role in a life already rich with adventure: Lady S, high-class spy in a diplomatic environment. This two-volume book includes "Na Zdorovie, Shaniouchka!"
With a penchant for addictive action and fantasy, Jean Van Hamme is one of Belgium's most successful contemporary novelists and comic-book writers. Since 1968, his most popular successes have been Thorgal (illustrated by Rosinski) and Largo Winch (illustrated by Francq), both published in English by Cinebook, and XIII (illustrated by Vance). By 2003, Philippe Aymond, a 34-year-old artist, had already published 13 books. Enticed by Aymond's neat and restrained drawings, Van Hamme entrusted him with the graphic destiny of Lady S, which possesses all the assets of a great series.
