George Simenon

The Friend of Madame Maigret


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, creating an intricate and complicated narrative set amongst the backdrop of the Marais district of Paris. Eventually it is the intelligent and compassionate Madame Maigret who provides the vital clue.
