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

Inspector Maigret becomes entangled in the dramas of a small town on his quest to solve the murder of their former postmistress

Maigret is called from his usual duties in Paris to investigate a murder in a small village located close to La Rochelle. A local postmistress has been killed and suspicion has fallen on the local schoolmaster. When Maigret gets there, he discovers a very inward-looking community of people who hated the victim because she knew all their secrets. Maigret must determine if one of those secrets was enough to make someone into a killer.

Simenon at his best sends Maigret to a seaside village on what seems at first a fools errand based on the word of the village schoolmaster an outsider readily suspected in the death of the local harridan no one liked
