Compagnon d’infortune de Chéri-Bibi, Palas, de son vrai nom Raoul de Saint-Dalmas est un jeune homme d’excellente famille accusé d’avoir assassiné son bienfaiteur et gaspillé son patrimoine. Malgré les preuves qui l’accablent il n’a eu de cesse de crier son innocence ce qui lui a valu d’être gracié mais pas d’échapper au bagne où il est condamné à perpétuité. Et c’est justement au bagne, au milieu des forçats, qu’il va retrouver son vieil ami qu’il croyait mort : Chéri-Bibi. Une fois encore la célèbre Fatalitas les protégera, favorisera leur évasion et les amènera à partager mille aventures abracadabrantes…

Read information about the authorGaston Louis Alfred Leroux was a French journalist and author of detective fiction.
In the English-speaking world, he is best known for writing the novel The Phantom of the Opera (Le Fantôme de l'Opéra, 1910), which has been made into several film and stage productions of the same name, such as the 1925 film starring Lon Chaney, and Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1986 musical. It was also the basis of the 1990 novel Phantom by Susan Kay.
Leroux went to school in Normandy and studied law in Paris, graduating in 1889. He inherited millions of francs and lived wildly until he nearly reached bankruptcy. Then in 1890, he began working as a court reporter and theater critic for L'Écho de Paris. His most important journalism came when he began working as an international correspondent for the Paris newspaper Le Matin. In 1905 he was present at and covered the Russian Revolution. Another case he was present at involved the investigation and deep coverage of an opera house in Paris, later to become a ballet house. The basement consisted of a cell that held prisoners in the Paris Commune, which were the rulers of Paris through much of the Franco-Prussian war.
He suddenly left journalism in 1907, and began writing fiction. In 1909, he and Arthur Bernède formed their own film company, Société des Cinéromans to simultaneously publish novels and turn them into films. He first wrote a mystery novel entitled Le mystère de la chambre jaune (1908; The Mystery of the Yellow Room), starring the amateur detective Joseph Rouletabille. Leroux's contribution to French detective fiction is considered a parallel to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's in the United Kingdom and Edgar Allan Poe's in America. Leroux died in Nice on April 15, 1927, of a urinary tract infection.
