about

Exiled from Paris, Maigret discovers some disturbing secrets in a sleepy coastal town, the twenty-second novel in the new Penguin Maigret series.

“A short, sprightly man appeared in the doorway, looked left and right, and went back into the passage. A moment later, the improbable happened. The little man reappeared, bent over, clinging to a long mass that he now started dragging through the mud. It must have been heavy. After four meters, he stopped to catch his breath. The front door of the house had been left open. The sea was still twenty or thirty meters away.”


Maigret has been exiled from Paris to a remote province, having offended his superiors. Out of his element, he is bored – until a murder case arrives.

Editorial Reviews

"One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century…Simenon was unequalled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories." - The Guardian "I love reading Simenon. 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 "Superb... The most addictive of writers... A unique teller of tales." - The Observer  "Compelling, remorseless, brilliant." - John Gray "A truly wonderful writer... marvelously readable - lucid, simple, absolutely in tune with the works he creates." - Muriel Spark "A novelist who entered his fictional world as if he were a part of it." - Peter Ackroyd "Extraordinary masterpieces of the twentieth century." - John Banville
