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 a colleague is shot under mysterious circumstances, Inspector Maigret must work fast to uncover the truth


During an undercover case, Inspector Maigret’s colleague Lognon is shot and rushed to surgery. The attack took place in a room he was sharing, unbeknownst to his friends and family, with a beautiful woman who has since disappeared. No one knows why he was there, but rumors are swirling that he was working on a case—something big. With all eyes on him, Inspector Maigret retraces Lognon’s secretive last few days and is drawn into the dark side of the Paris art world, where no one is as they seem.

A page-turner filled with shocking revelations, Maigret and the Ghost is an absorbing mystery.
