The agents of the organisation that was hunting for XIII have finally captured him, along with his friends, but he’s still refusing his captors’ job offer. Forced to give in after they commit an appalling act just to coerce him, he’s discreetly brought back to the USA, where he finally learns what they’re really after. Meanwhile, Betty Barnowsky continues her own investigation under the FBI’s very noses. For both of them, the road leads, once again, to Green Falls…

With this series Vance and Van Hamme took it to a level that you thought could not be equalled. Well, the art is still excellent. Yes, the women are still as well drawn as before.  The action scenes, locales and so on are all spot on.  The story? The story keeps on delivering the twists and turns and you have to ask "When will the saga of XIII ever end?"  For Betty Barnowsky it may well end pretty soon...but that might be a spoiler so.....

All you need to know is that XIII is like printed crack.  "One last book....what? There's another?  Oh god, how long do I have to wait??"  Heh, Cinebook is your dealer and it knows you are hooked.
