9780241188668: Félicie (Inspector Maigret)

A story of love and obsession featuring a most memorable femme fatale. The twenty-fifth novel in the new Penguin Maigret series.
 
Peg Leg Lapie, a crusty old sailor, is found mysteriously murdered in a most incongruous setting: a picturesque cottage near Paris, where he lived attended only by his young housekeeper, Félicie. But Lapie was not alone Maigret, chief inspector of the Paris police, is sure of it. A man at work in his garden, wearing clogs and a straw hat, does not suddenly drop his tools to go indoors and fetch a bottle of brandy to drink alone in the summerhouse. There must have been another glass that someone removed. But Félicie, in her red hat trimmed with an iridescent feather, proves a champion adversary, as skilled in innuendo and evasion as Maigret is in deduction.

About the Author:

Georges Simenon was born in Liège, Belgium, in 1903. Best known in the English-speaking world as the author of the Maigret books, his prolific output of over 400 novels and short stories has made him a household name in continental Europe. He died in 1989 in Lausanne, Switzerland, where he had lived for the latter part of his life.

David Coward is the award-winning translator of Albert Cohen's Belle du Seigneur and numerous other French works.

Review:

"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." - 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

"A novelist who entered his fictional world as if he were a part of it." - Peter Ackroyd

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