A new translation of this moving novel about the destructive power of greed this is book twenty in the new Penguin Maigret series. Poor Cecile

And yet she was still young. Maigret had seen her papers: barely twenty-eight years old. But it would be difficult to look more like an old maid to move less gracefully in spite of the care she took to be friendly and pleasant. Those black dresses that she must make for herself from bad paper patterns that ridiculous green hat

In the dreary suburbs of Paris the merciless greed of a seemingly respectable woman is unearthed by her long suffering niece and Maigret discovers the far-reaching consequences of their actions.

(Guardian). 'A supreme writer...unforgettable vividness.' (Independent). Georges Simenon was born in Liege Belgium in 1903. Best known in Britain as the author of the Maigret books his prolific output of over 400 novels and short stories have made him a household name in continental Europe.
