What starts as petty theft by the maids -- who are flashing back to their tumultuous time in a convent -- shortly turns into something more nefarious. Madame Lancelin's increasingly unhinged abuse ignites the sisters' toxic upbringing and social class exploitation and explodes into a ghastly double murder, an event that shocked and fascinated 1930s France and beyond. Maids has high bravura and high intrigue, all drawn in Skelly's highly stylized manner, which combines the best of pop art, manga, and Eurocomics. Full-color illustrations throughout."--Amazon.
