First sentence(s):
"I don't like it when Agatha goes out and night and leaves me all alone."

Paris in the thirties. The Butcher of the Dances is on the prowl for young loose women. Blanche works as a maid along with the only family she knows, her sister, fun-loving Agatha. Suddenly, Blanche loses her to what she saw was murder but others only write off as suicide. She decides to take matters into her own hands. In her pursuit, she ends up hired into a luxury house of call-girls. She even becomes quite good at certain lascivious practices while still remaining a virgin! But she also doesn t lose sight of her goal: find the Butcher. A suspenseful spicy tale as only the French could so lightly get away with, yet deceptive in its depth and realism. By the artist of Dungeon Early Years.

My two-bits:

This colorful graphic novel is a dark one in regards to murder and shady business in Paris of the 30's. It is an interesting take on an unusual heroine-in-the-making.

Blanche tries to leave the Pompadour, the high class house of call-girls, but their hooks are in deep. Nevertheless she encounters what could be her ticket out: a very handsome and very respectful young rich man, Antoine. She also reunites with her long-lost mother. It all seems rather idyllic but Antoine may be a little too respectful and how come her mother suddenly reappears?

My two-bits:

The story of Blanche continues with whoas that continue to befall the heroine who remains true to herself.
