"One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequaled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories." -- The Guardian

A gripping novel that sees Inspector Maigret brought out of his peaceful retirement

"Maigret shrugged his shoulders, buried his hands in his pockets and went off without answering. He had just spent one of the most wretched days in his life. For hours, in his corner he had felt old and feeble, without idea or incentive. But now a tiny flame flickered. 'You bet we'll see,' he growled."

Maigret's peaceful retirement in the countryside is disrupted when a relative unwittingly embroils himself in a crime he did not commit and the inspector returns to Police Headquarters in Paris once again.

Very little blood and guts, and not much of a mystery, but brimming with suspense-especially since Maigret is retired and has no authority to do anything about a miscarriage of justice. One of my top 10 writers of all time. (not that I believe in literary lists, but Love him and his roman durs, also.)
