Streets of Paris, Streets of Murder cover

I’ve only read Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot from this collection of four Jean-Patrick Manchette stories, adapted into graphic novels by Jacques Tardi, but based on that alone, I’d like to read the rest. Also included in this four-story hardback collection are Giffu, West Coast Blues and Run Like Crazy, Run Like Hell.

Manchette wrote grown-up thrillers packed with sex, violence and treachery, and Tardi doesn’t shy away from thrusting them in your face.

This boxed set from Fantagraphics is split into two hardback volumes, collected in a solid slipcase.
