The baffling murder of a famed Parisian artist in his locked and guarded studio takes the tenacious Detective Inspector LeBrock of Scotland Yard and his faithful adjunct, Detective Ratzi, into the cutthroat Grandville art scene to track the mysterious assassin. As the body count mounts and events spiral out of control, the investigation points to Toad Hall, where a cabal of industrialists and fat cats plot the overthrow of the French State... by use of steam-driven automaton soldiers!
* Grandville was nominated for an Eisner Award and a Hugo Award.
* Also look for Dotter of Her Father's Eyes and Cherubs from Dark Horse.

His books include Alice in Sunderland, Dotter of Her Father's Eyes (with Mary Talbot), the first graphic novel to win the Costa biography award, and the Grandville series.Review:
"I have greatly enjoyed the Grandville books. I think they're superbly designed, beautifully conceived, admirably written - everything about them is terrific... A graphic novel built on the solid foundation of a strong story." -- Philip Pullman "The third and finest stand-alone volume in the award-winning 'scientific-romance-thriller' series... These ingeniously plotted fantasies will make you bark with laughter." -- Larushka Ivan-Zadeh Metro "The bastard child of Conan Doyle and Beatrix Potter, it's a gripping feast for the eyes." -- Rachel Cooke Observer "Both acerbic and hilarious." Mr. Hyde "This ripping yarn of murder, mystery and the machinating arms tycoon Baron Krapaud of Toad Hall is both irresistibly exciting and sumptuously designed." -- David Langford Telegraph
