9780141187402: The Friend of Madame Maigret (Penguin Modern Classics)

Maigret becomes increasingly frustrated as his attempts to prove that a brutal, repulsive murder has been committed at a local bookbinder prove fruitless. The mystery revolves around a series of seemingly unconnected incidents and characters.

About the Author:

Georges Simenon (1903–1989) began work as a reporter for a local newspaper at the age of sixteen, and at nineteen he moved to Paris to embark on a career as a novelist. He went on to write seventy-five Maigret novels and twenty-eight Maigret short stories.

Review:

Maigret ranks with Holmes and Poirot in the pantheon of fictional detective immortals. (People)

Simenon remains an incredibly expert, dry, and inventive storyteller; the spell is infallible. (V. S. Pritchett)

Simenon created one of the great moral detectives . . . a master of the slow unfolding of the criminal mind. (John Mortimer)

A truly wonderful writer, marvelously readableùlucid, simple, absolutely in tune with that world he creates. (Muriel Spark)

A writer who, more than any other crime novelist, combined a high literary reputation with popular appeal. (P. D. James)
