9780141187709: Maigret Sets a Trap (Penguin Modern Classics)

Five women have been found stabbed to death in the Montmatre district of Paris and the killer is still at large; desperate, angry and exhausted, Maigret sets a trap for the killer - with terrible consequences. Set in the cafes, bars and busy streets of Paris in a blazing heat wave, Maigret's nerve and judgement are tested to the full as he uncovers the grotesque logic of a folie a deux.

"Marvellously evoke[s] the sounds, the smells,
the colour and the raucous life of European bars,
ports and cities."-P. D . JAMES
IT I S A H OT and steamy summer, and Maigret is hatching a plan to capture
a serial murderer by playing on the killer's perverse vanity. He finally
succeeds when an important clue leads him to a trio of suspects. But the
three are entangled in a web of guilt and possessiveness so tight that the
unraveling nearly exhausts the Inspector-until, at last, he discovers the tortured
motives behind the murders.
