Author(s): Jean Van Hamme
Next in bestselling XIII series. It is business as usual for XIII as they are hunted by the government, a murderous organisation and a beautiful double agent. The Mongoose is dead. So is Number I. But, since he was the President of the United States, XIII's friends are all on the run again. McLane, though, has been arrested and he's being judged in secret by the heads of the American intelligence community. Sentenced to life in a secret prison, he has no illusions that he'll ever escape. The ruthlessness of the NSA Director proves him right and others want him dead.
Initially serialized in Spirou magazine in 1984, "XIII" was created by Jean Van Hamme, the author behind "Thorgal" and "Largo Winch" - the latter in comic and book form as well as on the big screen - and William Vance, illustrator of the bestsellers "Howard Flynn," "Bruce Hawker," "Bruno Brazil," "Bob Morane" and "Marshall Blueberry."
