Kenya, 1947. A hunting expedition led by American writer John Remington makes a startling encounter, and then vanishes without a trace.

Shortly afterwards, Katherine Austin, agent of the British Secret Intelligence Service, arrives in Mombasa. Her mission: investigate a series of mysterious sightings and incidents, of which the disappearance of the Remington party could be the latest. Undercover as a teacher, courted by colleagues who may be working for competing secret services, she’s about to enter a whole new reality…

 I did a preview of this book last year and I couldn't wait for the book.  It never arrived.  Yes I cried.  Another Post Office loss but now Cinebook have been kind enough to send the book again (I love 'em).

I am, as people should know by now, a big fan of LEO  and this collaboration with Rodolphe (who has written 150 plus graphic novels!) is spot on.  Plotting, dialogue -everything spot on. I love this....including the British agent with rather dubious tastes in reading material!

Things look like this might turn into a very good series indeed -and Scarlet Smulkowski's olour work just enhances the whole book.
