Spirou and Fantasio, in transit through Paris airport, are kidnapped by French counter-intelligence: in exchange for the release of two French nationals from Soviet prisons, the KGB demanded the two reporters’ assistance. Because Moscow has a problem: the mob is getting increasingly powerful and bold, and it has infiltrated the authorities so thoroughly they can’t fight back anymore. They do know, however, that the big boss is someone Spirou and Fantasio have met before and simply cannot ignore…
Well, the usual cartoony adventures and travelling you expect from the duo -this time in Moscow. "KGB" -oh, nostalgia! And not a sign of Putin....but this was first published in 1990 when there was still a Soviet Union.
There are some really -really- surrealistic things going on in this book and...the White Prince Durak!!! I need a t-shirt with him on. Enjoyable fun.
