Overview

“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

When suspicion turns on Inspector Maigret for a crime he did not commit, he must use every investigative tool in his arsenal to clear his name.

For the first time in his career, Inspector Maigret receives written summons to the Chief Commissioner’s office. There he learns that he has been accused of a horrible assault by an individual with ties to a high-ranking official. He is forbidden from attempting to investigate the case, but with his career and reputation on the line, Maigret must do everything he can to prove his innocence and uncover the motive behind the accusation.

A nail-biting dissection of what happens when suspicion falls on the very man tasked with bringing about justice, Maigret Defends Himself is a riveting mystery from Georges Simenon.
