Complete

Perfect story believable throughout, rational deduction with empathy and persistent suspense. Detective fiction at its best.

It's Simenon - enough said!

Simenon was a genius. The seeming simplicity of his storytelling is anything but that, due to the wonderful writing of an author who could condense almost noir police procedurals and thrillers into 3-5 hours of great storytelling. Gareth Armstrong brings the great detective to life by breathing life into the words of the French literary genius.

Captures the real Maigret

Excellent reading and perfectly captures the tone of Maigret, especially if you liked the old Michael Gambon TV series.

A great detective novel

The narrator is excellent and I thoroughly enjoy the trip round Paris from my living room
