E. P Jacobs' characters, Francis Blake and Philip Mortimer, have been around a very long time and survived the passing of their original creator. As explained in the introduction, finding an artist with sufficient skill to carry on the series has not been easy, but this volume is superb.
With a small nod to the Dan Brown genre, this story sees them investigating a twist in a bible story with the supposed discovery of the thirty pieces of silver given to Judas Iscariot which are uncovered when a minor earthquake exposes a previously buried subterranean chapel. The title refers to the bad luck that comes with them.
As with the Tintin stories, some of which Jacobs had helped Hergé with, the plot twists and turns with cliff-hanger endings to many pages.
If you haven't tried explored this series then you in for a treat. A number have been translated into English, but this volume (19th in the series) is brand new. It is the first part in the story and leaves Mortimer in a predicament on the last page - I can't wait for Part 2! Please, please can Amazon tell me when it is out?
