The circumstances of Monsieur Gallet's death all seem fake: the name the deceased was travelling under and his presumed profession and, more worryingly, his family's grief. Their haughtiness seems to hide ambiguous feelings about the hapless man. In this haunting story, Maigret discovers the appalling truth and the real crime hidden behind the surface of lies.

Thanks to Penguin Classics for publishing some hard to find Maigret mysteries. This is the first one published (1931).

Not at all fast paced, no multiple gory scenes-the drama comes from delving into less visible drama.

"I love reading Simenon. He makes me think of Chekhov."
William Faulkner
