Overview

Three vintage Maigret novels by legendary mystery author Georges Simenon

One of the world 's most successful crime writers, Georges Simenon has thrilled mystery lovers since 1931 with his matchless creation Inspector Maigret. In My Friend Maigret, Inspector Maigret investigates the murder of a small- time crook on a Mediterranean island. Told in Simenon's spare, unsentimental prose, Inspector Cadaver is a haunting exploration of provincial hypocrisy and snobbery, in which Maigret encounters a rival sleuth from his past. In Maigret and the Man on the Boulevard, Simenon's tenacious detective pieces together the life of a man who for three years lived a secret life-until he is found stabbed to death in an alleyway.

    A cop with intuition and brains

    With a scotland yard counterpart in tow maigret questions his own skills but that doesnt slow him down much, he listens asks questions sweats in the heat drinks and absorbs small island gossip and culture. His mind composts all the accumulated garbage and suddenly a tulip sprouts up and he knows who and why the victim died. I liked this story because i got to see how his mind works, those who love the mystery and detective stories of the first half of twentieth century will love watching him work. try one.
