Maigret dismantles an intricate network of lies stretching from Paris to Nice in book twenty-three of the new Penguin Maigret series. "Mechanically, he had put his pince-nez down on the blotter and looked at it there with his large, short-sighted eyes. It is at that moment that the strange thing happens. One of the lenses, acting as a mirror, reflected the criss-cross, hatched ink marks which had dried on the blotter and he could just make out a couple of words." When a fortuneteller is found murdered in her apartment, Maigret must find out not only who commited the crime, but why it was predicted in a note found earlier--signed by the unknown Picpus. From the Trade Paperback edition.

 Georges Simenon’s 75 novels and 28 short stories that feature Chief Inspector Jules Maigret provide us with a great deal of information about the French police detective—but only in small, episodic doses. As readers become acquainted with Maigret one detail at a time, he slowly takes on a flesh-and-bone realism—not merely a character in a story, but someone we would like to meet in real life. This book presents all the canonical facts and details about the detective and his world in one place, presented with tabulations and analyses that enable a better understanding of the works and of Maigret himself.

A once-wealthy family closes ranks when one of their own is shot, leaving Maigret - along with a troublesome new magistrate - to pick his way through their secrets. It was as if suddenly, long ago, life had stopped here, not the life of the man lying on the bed but the life of the house, the life of its world, and even the factory chimney that could be seen through the curtains looked obsolete and absurd. Penguin is publishing the entire series of Maigret novels in new translations. 'His artistry is supreme' John Banville 'One of the greatest writers of our time' Sunday Times

Georges Simenon is the creator of the unforgettable character Inspector Maigret, the Parisian police detective who was the central figure in more than a hundred of Simenon's novels, as well as in countless movies and television adaptations. In fact, Simenon is without doubt the most widely published French writer of the twentieth century, and the literary merits of his work have been often obscured by the sheer size of his output: 190 potboilers signed with 17 pseudonyms, 358 novels and short stories signed Simenon, 25 autobiographical works, 30 series of articles published in the French press before and immediately after World War II, and a ballet scenario. Becker devotes serious critical consideration to Simenon's "roman durs," the "hard (problem) novels" that are characterized by an extraordinary blend of narrative skill and psychological insight, and discusses how he effected a transformation of the detective novel genre. A thoughtful, knowledgeable, and highly readable book, Georges Simenon Revisited will be a valuable resource for both scholars and students.
