Publisher's Summary

Maigret finds himself back on the Rue des Acacias just 10 days after cracking another case there. This time it is the murder of a criminal Maigret has known for over 20 years and one he always suspected was behind a string of jewellery robberies in the city. Maigret's patience is tested as he eliminates neighbour by neighbour in his hunt for the murderer. 

This novel has been published in a previous translation as Maigret Bides His Time

Absolutely brilliant.

This is, without doubt, the best of the Maigret novels I have read. The plot, dialogue and descriptions create the most gripping atmosphere. This really is a superb piece of writing and I can understand why Simenon is so highly regarded. The narration, by Gareth Armstrong could not be bettered and adds so much to every aspect of,this story. Don’t forget to read Maigret Defends Himself BEFORE you read this as they are linked.
