Asked to help a friend's brother-in-law who is accused of murdering the lover of his daughter, Maigret arrives in a small French town and finds himself plunged into an atmosphere of animosity. He soon finds himself tangled up in a case that may ruin the very people whom he has come to help. He also has to deal with an old enemy - an ex-police officer nicknamed 'Inspector Cadaver' - who seems to be doing everything in his power to obstruct Maigret's investigations.

About the Author:

Georges Simenon was born at Liege in 1903. He published over 160 books and his work has been admired by almost all the leading French and English critics. His books have been translated into more than 20 languages and more than 40 have been filmed.

Review:

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

"A supreme writer...unforgettable vividness." - The Independent

"Superb... The most addictive of writers... A unique teller of tales." - The Observer 

"Compelling, remorseless, brilliant." - John Gray

"A truly wonderful writer... marvelously readable - lucid, simple, absolutely in tune with the works he creates." - Muriel Spark
