Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

 A devastating tale of misfortune, betrayal, and the weakness of family ties, newly translated for the Inspector Maigret series

In the third Maigret mystery, the circumstances of Monsieur Gallet's death all seem fake: the name he was traveling under, his presumed profession, and, more worryingly, his family's grief. Their haughtiness seems to hide ambiguous feelings about the hapless man. Soon Maigret discovers the appalling truth and the real crime hidden beneath the surface of their lies.

Collect this and other novels in the Inspector Maigret series, now available in thrilling new English translations.
