Description


When a man is killed outside a Parisian boarding house, Maigret moves in to get to the bottom of it. The thirty-seventh book in the new Penguin Maigret series.

While keeping watch outside Mademoiselle Clement's boarding house to await a suspect in a local bar robbery, a man named Janvier is shot in the chest. When Maigret, whose wife is away caring for her sister in Alsace, hears of the crime, he moves into the boarding house to solve the case. But the web quickly grows ever-more tangled, and Maigret must navigate generations-long secrets and a torrid affair to find his answers before it's too late.

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

"I love reading Simenon. He makes me think of Chekhov." --William Faulkner

"The greatest of all, the most genuine novelist we have had in literature." --Andre Gide

"Extraordinary masterpieces of the twentieth century." --John Banville.
