Jerome K. Jerome Bloche Vol. 1 The Shadow Killer, Hardback Book


The series stars an endearing youngprivate-eye-in-training who solves crimes as he scoots around Paris on histrusty motorized bicycle.

Given his general clumsiness, he seems more WillFerrell than Humphrey Bogart.

Translated in English for the firsttime. Wearing an old trenchcoat and hisindispensable felt hat, the 20-year-old Jerome tries to look thepart of a seasoned sleuth.

By day he translates detective novels and fantasizesabout being one.

By night he's enrolled in Professor Maison'scorrespondence course for would-be private eyes.

His girlfriend, Babette, is aflight attendant who brings him recordings for his collection of police sirensfrom around the world. And then, his first "case": In the past twomonths, fifteen people in Paris have been killed by poisoned darts.

All thatwitnesses saw was a feathered shadow and a blowgun.

The job of capturing theflamboyant assassin is entrusted to Jerome by Professor Maison. Things get off to a rocky start, however, when the professor appears to bevictim number sixteen!
