Description


“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 two people turn up dead at the same hotel mere hours apart, Maigret suspects it is no coincidence

When multi-millionaire David Ward is found dead in the same hotel as a countess who attempted suicide only hours earlier, Maigret presumes that the two cases are connected. When the countess flees Paris after the murder, Maigret follows her to Nice and then to Switzerland to uncover the truth. Maigret Travels is a tense, intricately woven mystery with a shocking conclusion.
