Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Maigret . . . ranks with Holmes and Poirot in the pantheon of fictional detective immortals." — People

It's Christmastime in Paris, and the great detective Maigret is investigating holiday mayhem in nine delightful short stories. The mysteries abound: an otherwise sensible little girl insists that she has seen Father Christmas, a statement alarming to her neighbors, Monsieur and Madame Maigret. Then, a choirboy helps the inspector solve a crime while he lies in bed with a cold; and another boy, pursued by a criminal, ingeniously leaves a trail to help Maigret track him. Many of these stories feature observant and resourceful children, frightened yet resolute, who bring out a paternal streak in the childless Maigret. The rapport between the inspector and these youthful heroes imparts a delightful freshness to this holiday collection--a cornucopia for fans of Maigret and mysteries.

"Simenon created one of the great moral detectives . . . . a master of the slow unfolding of the criminal mind." --John Mortimer

Georges Simenon (1903-1989) was born in Liège, Belgium. He published his first novel at seventeen and 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.

This collection, containing nine of Simenon's best short stories, begins with a Christmas mystery; an otherwise sensible little girl insists that she has seen Father Christmas, a statement alarming to her neighbors, Monsieur and Madame Maigret. Indeed, the stories contain quite a number of observant and resourceful children, frightened yet resolute. A choirboy helps Maigret solve a crime while the Inspector lies in bed with a cold; another youngster, pursued by a criminal, ingeniously leaves a trail for Maigret to follow. These precocious children bring out the paternal streak in Maigret and help give a delightful freshness to this collection--a cornucopia for Maigret fans.
