Suzan Fitzroy is in Sweden, where her adopted father is filling in for the American Ambassador. The most exciting prospect on her agenda is the Nobel Prize ceremony. But her quiet life in Stockholm is disrupted when the mysterious Orion, the secretive anti-terror agent, contacts her: he has another job for her. The simple task turns into something much more complex, and before long Suzan is deeply involved in a conspiracy that has links to her past-and to her heart.
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 ThorgalA" (illustrated by Rosinski), Largo WinchA" (illustrated by Francq), and XIIIA" (illustrated by Vance), published in English by Cinebook. 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,A" which possesses all the assets of a great series.
