Publisher's Summary

"A new translation, by David Bellos, of this chilling novel, set on the Belgian border.

"She wasn't an ordinary supplicant. She didn't lower her eyes. There was nothing humble about her bearing. She spoke frankly, looking straight ahead, as if to claim what was rightfully hers. If you don't agree to look at our case, my parents and I will be lost, and it will be the most hateful legal error...."

Maigret is asked to the windswept, rainy border town of Givet by a young woman desperate to clear her family of murder. But their well-kept shop, the sleepy community, and its raging river all hide their own mysteries.

Georges Simenon was born in Liège, 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. He died in 1989 in Lausanne, Switzerland, where he had lived for the latter part of his life.

What the Critics Say

"Compelling, remorseless, brilliant" (John Gray)

"One of the greatest writers of the twentieth 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)

"A supreme writer... unforgettable vividness" (Independent)

    "narration just wrong!"

    Have read all the Maigret stories and they are all worthy of five stars.

    The narration here is just lazy. Mispronunciation of the drink geneva as the city Geneva, and the adoption of English regional accents for non Parisian characters. The reading is uninspired anyway. 10 minutes was all I could stand.
