About this title

Synopsis:

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

From the Back Cover:

"Simenon created one of the great moral detectives . . .a master of the slow unfolding of the criminal mind."-JOHN MORT I M E R

Someone is moving a kind old woman's furniture while she is away, but by the time Maigret investigates, she is dead.

A kind, elderly lady-meticulously groomed and showing no signs of derangement-appeals to Inspector Maigret, frightened because someone has been moving furniture in her apartment. Nothing, however, has been stolen, and Maigret's subordinates at Police Headquarters shrug her off as "Maigret's madwoman." Touched by the imploring look in her eyes, Maigret promises to investigate-but someone gets there ahead of him.
"Simenon is . . . in a class by himself."-T H E N E W YO R K E R
