Didier Cassegrain's new graphic novel! An adaptation of Michel Bussi's best-selling, widely-translated crime novel Nympheas Noirs ("Black Water Lilies"), the most awarded French crime novel of 2011.

From the publisher:

In the village of Giverny, where Claude Monet created some of his most beautiful paintings, the peace and tranquility are suddenly broken by a mysterious murder. When a detective is sent to investigate, he encounters a young amateur artist, a seductive schoolteacher, and an old lady who stays home to spy on her neighbors. Which of the three women can help him solve the crime? And is there any truth in the rumor that several priceless masterpieces, including the famous "Black Waterlilies," have been lost or stolen?

Michel Bussi turns the collision of art and passion into a game of smoke and mirrors and throws us into a maelstrom of illusions and enigmas. His vision is brilliantly transcribed by Fred Duval and brought to life by Didier Cassegrain, whose atmospheric use of light and shade echoes Monet's own Impressionist style.

"Nymphéas noirs" is much more than an adaptation. It is at once an homage to one of the most iconic movements in modern art, a spellbinding detective story ranging across history, and a fantastic fairytale with a sting in the tail. Like the "Black Waterlilies" itself, it is both dark and glorious.
