Eurocrime Graphic Novel

This graphic novel was published in July last year, in English for the first time, by cinebook.

According to it was a "French comic first published in 1995 and 1996 by Darguad-Lombard", and they go on to say:
"This is the first volume in a series. Is it worth following? If you have any interest at all in the international espionage/crime genre you will thoroughly enjoy this. If you enjoy realistic artwork helping to tell that story, you will certainly like this. If you enjoy both, you've hit the jackpot!"
You can read the whole of the review, here.

Synopsis: Assia Donkova is a young Muscovite, idealistic and very attractive. As manager of an art gallery, she visits Paris museums and exhibitions in search of new Western talents. In front of a Monet work one day, she meets painter Julian Morgan. Very quickly the young woman falls under his spell, and they meet again. But is Julian only an aspiring painter? Why does he spy on Assia’s slightest moves? And what are the mysterious appointments Assia keeps? Russian mafia and powerful financial organizations are at the centre of a diabolical machination... one that could eventually present grave danger to the new global balance...
