Maigret

By Georges Simenon & Ros Schwartz
Maigret by Georges Simenon & Ros Schwartz digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

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

A gripping novel that sees Inspector Maigret brought out of his peaceful retirement

“Maigret shrugged his shoulders, buried his hands in his pockets and went off without answering. He had just spent one of the most wretched days in his life. For hours, in his corner he had felt old and feeble, without idea or incentive. But now a tiny flame flickered. ‘You bet we'll see,’ he growled.”

Maigret’s peaceful retirement in the countryside is disrupted when a relative unwittingly embroils himself in a crime he did not commit and the inspector returns to Police Headquarters in Paris once again.

“Super! Maigret has retired and has moved out to the country, but before long his nephew (a young cop) knocks on the door and shares his terrible news- he's been set up to take the fall for a murder! Of course, Maigret must come to town to fix it, all the while butting heads with his successor at the Quays and also with the the criminal element that he must tangle with, but without the backup of a badge or real authority. Instead of staring / talking down the perp in his office he must go the guys home (who is holding all the cards) and maneuver him into confessing (he has set it up so the police can overhear) and it's a swashbuckling conclusion- Maigret even fires his gun (though not to kill, thankfully). Great.”
