9781531835835: Maigret Gets Angry (Inspector Maigret)

Maigret is cajoled out of retirement by a case involving an old classmate in book 26 of the new Penguin Maigret series.

All that was still unclear, for sure. Ernest Malik had been right when he had looked at Maigret with a smile that was a mixture of sarcasm and contempt. This wasn''t a case for him. He was out of his depth. This world was unfamiliar to him, and he had difficulty piecing it all together.

Peacefully tending his garden in the countryside, Maigret is called upon to investigate a rich family with skeletons in their cupboard—and finds himself confronted by lies, snobbery and malice.

Georges Simenon was born in Liège, Belgium, in 1903. Best known in Britain 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.

“Extraordinary masterpieces of the twentieth century.” —John Banville
