9780156551519: Maigret Bides His Time

Maigret’s longest-running case involves two decades of jewelry heists, a generation of conspiracy, and the revelation of a long-buried secret from World War II. “[Simenon could] turn the simplest of romans policiers into a moving and memorable form of art.” — The Times (London) “[Maigret’s investigation] is a bittersweet elegy for the glory days of both thief and cop.” — Chicago Sun-Times

About the Author:

Georges Simenon (1903-1989) was born in Lie`ge, Belgium. As a young man he worked as a baker, journalist, and bookseller and published his first novel at seventeen. He went on to write more than two hundred novels, becoming one of the world's most prolific and bestselling authors. His books have sold more than 500 million copies and have been translated into fifty languages.

From AudioFile:

Chief Inspector Maigret has been powerless to crack the bewildering "daylight" jewelry heist cases happening in Paris for more than twenty years. Clifford Norgate's mastery at capturing Maigret, his associates, and the contemptuous suspects encountered throughout the story is outstanding. His impeccable dialects provide authenticity to this absorbing mystery. As he escorts the listener through interrogations, grisly discoveries, and Maigret's thought processes, the city of Paris and the characters spring to life with every word.
