Publisher Description

“A writer as comfortable with reality as with fiction, with passion as with reason.” —John Le Carré

When a public tragedy threatens to expose a scandal within the Paris government, the Minister of Public Works calls in a favor to Maigret

A public project has collapsed and resulted in the death of 128 children after a report warning officials about the unsafe structure was disregarded. Now, that report has resurfaced, along with allegations that several politicians and contractors involved with the project may have suppressed its findings to avoid a scandal.

Maigret must enter the shifty world of politics, dodged by members of the security police wherever he goes. In an unfamiliar world of decadent diplomatic officials, fanatic followers of political parties, and suspicious staff in politicians’ entourages, Maigret grimly sticks to what he knows best: finding the perpetrators of criminal acts.

“Great middle period Maigret. Jules is called in the middle of the night to head over to a public works minister's house to hear about the missing Calame Report... and potential political land mine assigning blame for a disastrous public project. M. must navigate the political treachery and backstabbing to try to save the well-meaning provincial minister.”
