about

Maigret is drawn out of retirement when a young woman is found dead in the Seine and her grandmother turns up at his door. The twenty-sixth novel in the new Penguin Maigret series.

Two years into his retirement at Meung-sur-Loire, Maigret has yet to come across a case compelling enough to tempt him back into the business. But when 18-year-old Monita Malik is found dead in the Seine River, he is all but ordered to the small town of Orsennes by the girl’s grandmother. There, Maigret encounters Ernest Malik, an old acquaintance from his school days whom he’s always disliked on instinct, and it quickly becomes clear that Maigret’s presence is not welcome in Orsenne. When others from Orsenne’s elite families begin to go missing as well, Maigret can’t help but be swept up in the mystery.

“One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . .

He makes me think of Chekhov.” —William Faulkner   “The greatest of all, the most genuine novelist we have had in literature.” — André Gide   “A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness.” —The Independent (London)   “Superb . . . the most addictive of writers . . . a unique teller of tales.” —The Observer (London)   “Compelling, remorseless, brilliant.” —John Gray   “A truly wonderful writer . . . marvellously readable—lucid, simple, absolutely in tune with the work he creates.” —Muriel Spark   “A novelist who entered his fictional world as it he were a part of it.” —Peter Ackroyd   “Extraordinary masterpieces of the twentieth century.” —John Banville
