A brutal one-two punch of savage noir thrillers teaming a master crime novelist and a superlative graphic novelist.

Streets of Paris, Streets of Murder is the first of two volumes presenting all four hardboiled crime graphic novels by Jean-Patrick Manchette and Jacques Tardi in a luxurious oversize format.

Gerard Griffu knew that when the sultry blonde with the pouty lips and the slit skirt sashayed into his office after hours, he shouldn’t trust her — and she didn’t disappoint!

Then, when a young sales executive goes to the aid of an accident victim, he is suddenly sucked into a spiral of violence revolving around a war criminal and two hired assassins. Forced to ditch his family for a life on the run, he finally finds an ally and returns to repay his tormentors — with brutal, bloody interest.

In these two graphic novels, Tardi’s nonstop pulp-action style propels Manchette’s hardboiled crime stories with a pulsing energy that will keep you on the edge to the end.

Plus, this volume offers a bonus 21-page unfinished story by Manchette and Tardi and an introduction to another uncompleted story, both appearing in English for the first time.
