My Friend Maigret
by Georges Simenon and Shaun Whiteside




Overview -
" My Friend Maigret] is a great vehicle for passing the dead minutes...by pondering, with Maigret, the challenges of order versus chaos, how to serve justice, if it needs serving--and an island filled with 'nothing but phenomena.'" --The New York Times Book Review

Inspector Maigret investigates the murder of a small-time crook on a Mediterranean island

While Inspector Pyke of Scotland Yard is staying with Maigret to observe his methods, Maigret receives word of a murder in the Midi on the island of Porquerolles. The victim is Marcellin, a man who claims to have been Maigret's friend but was actually a criminal whose girlfriend, a sex worker, Maigret helped out of a scrape years ago.

Travelling to the island, Maigret and Pyke must solve a mystery that takes them deep into the shadowy world of art forgery and the heart of an isolated community with eccentric inhabitants--and no shortage of secrets. My Friend Maigret is a page-turning mystery set in the sun-drenched south of France about what can happen when past acquaintances resurface.

"One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequaled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories." --The Guardian
