Alain and Christophe are fellow students in a monastery. When they are caught fooling around Alain is ready to leave, but Christophe wants to be a priest so stays behind breaking Alain's heart. Years later they run into each other and Alain is seeking information on the man who murdered his mother and has been promised the identity of the man if he compromises Christophe so the Cardinal can blackmail Christophe into a relationship. Both men make sacrifices to "save" the other and the heartless machinations of the aristocracy are revealed. This is set during the French Revolution which is very unusual. The drawing is gorgeous with fancy gown and all the trappings of the French upper crust and I really enjoy the style these author's use. It's written "western" style so you read it like a western book, front to back rather than Japanese style.
