Publisher's Summary

A sparkling new translation of this flashback to the start of Inspector Maigret's career, part of the new Penguin Maigret series.

The profession he had always yearned for did not actually exist...he imagined a cross between a doctor and a priest - a man capable of understanding another's destiny at first glance.

The very first investigation by eager young police secretary Jules Maigret leads him to a wealthy Paris family's dark secrets.

What the Critics Say

"His artistry is supreme." (John Banville)

"One of the greatest writers of the 20th century.... Simenon was unequalled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories." (Guardian)

    Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.

    "Interesting"

    An enjoyable listen. Not the best Maigret, and still good. The atmosphere and humour is very much there and kind of fun to learn how it all starts. I suspect it will add to my enjoyment when I go back and listen to the other stories in the series.
