About this title

Synopsis:

When Maigret receives a visit from an old schoolmate whose mistress has been shot to death, he feels compelled to look into the case. Yet his friend is one of the suspects--along with the dead woman’s four other lovers, each unknown to the others. The basis for a public television Mystery! presentation. Translated by Eileen Ellenbogen.

Maigret is a registered trademark of the Estate of Georges Simenon.

From the Back Cover:

"A writer who, more than any other crime novelist, combined a high literary reputation with popular appeal."-P. D . JAMES

WH E N M A I G R E T receives a visit from an old schoolmate whose mistress has been shot to death, he feels compelled to look into the case. Yet his boyhood friend is one of the suspects-along with the dead woman's four other lovers, each unknown to the others. Patiently Maigret works on his less than honest friend and a truculent concierge who knows more than she will tell. Slowly some unpleasant truths begin to surface and, in a startling finale, Maigret has no trouble seeing through the murderer's act.
