Cult series alert! A man is found injured, at death's door. When he wakes up, he doesn’t remember anything and suffers from amnesia: no past, no family and no name. His only clue is a number tattooed on his shoulder: XIII. An extraordinary adventure begins... Hunted by killers, his desperate search to find out who he is leads him to the epicenter of a horrendous conspiracy. With XIII, William Vance and Jean Van Hamme deliver an iconic Franco-Belgian comic in this series that lies somewhere between Jason Bourne and the Kennedy saga.
The agents of the organisation that was hunting for XIII have finally captured him, along with his friends, but he’s still refusing his captors’ job offer. Forced to give in after they commit an appalling act just to coerce him, he’s discreetly brought back to the USA, where he finally learns what they’re really after. Meanwhile, Betty Barnowsky continues her own investigation under the FBI’s very noses. For both of them, the road leads, once again, to Green Falls…
Jason has managed to give his captors the slip, but he was forced to leave Betty behind, severely injured. After a short but tense episode dealing with the north-eastern mafia, he’s off to the next step in his quest: Leiden, Holland, from where half of the Mayflower expedition left, and where his godfather appears to live. But his enemies haven’t given up, and the young local guide he’s picked brings her own heap of troubles…
Still with Annika, Jason McLane has the documents his godfather left for him to find in the Netherlands deciphered. Once translated, the text offers revelations of breathtaking importance – enough to change the geopolitical map for ever. But the killers sent by the Mayflower Foundation are still after them, while in Afghanistan, Jones and Carrington’s situation goes from bad to worse. XIII will have to be on his best game to sort it all out – but at what price?
Jason McLane, a.k.a. XIII, seems to have finally accepted his true destiny. Tired of fighting the powerful elite who control the world, he has apparently joined them. Of course, he supposedly did so on orders from General Wolf, so as to bring down the sinister Mayflower Foundation at last, but … what if the temptation of power proved too strong? Janet Fitzsimmons, the Foundation’s president, too beautiful? Or the price of integrity too steep for him … or his friends?
Jason McLane – XIII – has just taken a shot at the pope during an official visit to Washington DC. If he hadn’t, two innocent hostages would have paid the price. Granted, General Wolf’s orders were always to maintain his cover at all costs, but the plans of the Mayflower conspirators – the same people that XIII was supposed to infiltrate but now control him through blackmail – are appallingly more complex and dangerous than just this assassination attempt. American democracy itself is in danger …
After the terrible attack on the Capitol, the Mayflower Foundation, now under the sole leadership of Janet Fitzsimmons, succeeded in taking over the US government. As for Jason McLane, he has become a puppet controlled electronically by Janet – and is now also her husband, as well as one of the new president’s closest advisors. When XIII goes to Cuba in order to covertly spring a Russian hacker from prison, he has no idea his past will once again come back to haunt him …
