Plunge anew into the Paris of Wonders!

Paris, early 20th century. The gentlemen sport proud moustaches and bowler hats; the ladies wear corsets, petticoats and button boots. Gleaming jalopies jostle among horse-drawn carriages on the Grands Boulevards with their grand Haussmannian buildings. But the Eiffel Tower is made of white wood, mermaids frolic in the Seine, and elves discuss philosophy with winged cats...

This collection contains six short stories set in the world of Paris of Marvels. Pierre Pevel is the author of one of them, and the other five are by new or established authors. They have joined forces to conjure up a series of investigations - conducted by policemen, journalists and amateur or professional detectives - into the criminal underbelly of both Paris and the Otherworld!
