- Full Description
In the middle of the 21st century, earth has suffered massive climate, economic and political upheaval. Formerly emerging countries are the new strong nations. Whites are now the minority race, and treated as such. Europe is in decline, Romane, a young policewoman in a run-down Paris, is dragged into a difficult, dangerous investigation that could impact mankind itself. Her case will take her to New York City and the headquarters of a corporation conducting mind-boggling genetic manipulations--secretly known as The Mermaid Project. Brazilian artist Leo is best known for his science-fiction saga The Worlds of Aldebaran.
I like this and look forward to the next installment. The heroine is nothing like we are used to...she looks almost like a man except on the rare occasions she's changing. She wears everyday clothes, rides a bicycle around Paris, and has never flown in a jet until this adventure takes place. The world is a very different place here, and she's often paying for the mistreatment of minorities over the past hundreds of years, as those around her second-guess her every move.
But she's bright, dedicated, and going to do the very best job she can to make things right. It all begins with an apparent suicide in a bathtub in Paris. But then a couple with a missing daughter, presumed dead, bring in a letter addressed to her--pointing out the body that was buried is not that of the daughter at all. What is going on, and how is her twin brother, a scientist who works for this mysterious company, involved? And what is the deal on the tall, handsome spy-type who's now taken over the case but still dragging her along?
Translated from the French, first published in 2012 in France.
