A beautiful new series by the team that brought us Gringos Locos and Spirou et la femme léopard. A post-war period piece featuring feisty detectives in exotic locales. Every panel by Olivier Schwartz is just a beauty to behold.

From the publisher:

Cannes, August 1949. The Cadillac which transports the richest imam in the world and his wife, the Begum, to the Nice airfield is attacked in broad daylight. In just a few minutes the most spectacular hold-up of the post-war period: blocked by a front-wheel drive and threatened with machine guns, the Aga Khan couple is relieved of a small handbag containing among other things a 22-carat diamond... Value of the haul: more than 200 million francs in jewels...!

In Paris, the young Atom Vercorian, a cop's son dreaming of a career as a private detective, sees the big break to launch his agency! Flanked by Mimi, a mouse with a strong character, and joined by Jojo la Toupie, the former glory of the heavyweight wrestling class--whose past may well be linked to that of the Begum--the apprentice investigator goes on the trail of the robbers, pointed by the old French resistance companions of his father...
