XIII is hiding in France at the Prseaus, after a past more nebulous he even believed possible caught up to him again. But the organisation that's after him hasn't said its last word, and has considerable means at its disposal. It lures Jones, on duty in Afghanistan, into a terrible ambush, for the sole purpose of serving as bait for the amnesiac - who immediately rushes to her rescue. Meanwhile, Betty Barnowsky-Prseau is off to Maine to dig into XIII's past.
Yves Sente began writing scripts in 1999 and has already acquired considerable clout, being chosen as successor to Van Hamme for the series "Thorgal" and the sequel to "XIII" and working with Van Hamme on "Blake & Mortimer." Arrived from Russia with his first completed project in hand, Youri Jigounov proved himself to the Franco-Belgian comic scene with series "Alpha", so much so that his elegant, precise art was chosen to succeed William Vance's.
It's the end of the road for everyone. The only question remaining is: Who will live?
XIII and his friends have failed to recover Maximilian's gold and are tired of hiding, running and struggling. When two books come out in the USA relating all the events of the amnesiac's life and the details of the Conspiracy of the XX, they see it as a possible chance to come out in the open and trust in their country's justice. But they still have enemies, at home and abroad, and everyone is set on a collision course...
Having escaped from the clutches of Irina's organization, XIII is on the loose in America but still hunted by both Giordino's NSA and Irina's top assassin, Jessica. As he tries to return to his friends in San Miguel, he's forced to dodge bullets and outsmart various traps and ambushes. With the odds stacked against him, he will have to rely on help from an enemy and his own mounting anger at the constant string of attacks.
XIII is looking for a certain Kim Rowlands, a woman with whom he saw himself in a photograph. His search will yield a name-his, perhaps-and take him to a place that may be home. All families have secrets, though, and they can get a man killed. And what exactly do General Carrington and his beautiful aide Lieutenant Jones want with XIII?
