Maigret At the Coroner’s

£7.99

Maigret is touring the US to observe American methods. No one expects anything of him except to drink a great deal and be sociable. FBI officer Cole is his guide in Arizona. But after a bit, Cole needs to attend to his own affairs, so he parks Maigret at a coroner’s inquest for a few hours. A young woman who spent the night drinking with five Air Force men was found on the railroad tracks torn to shreds by a train. Was it a gruesome mischance, or murder?

Description

‘Compelling, remorseless, brilliant’ John Gray

The FBI man was convinced, in short, that Maigret was a big shot in his own country but that here, in the United States, he was incapable of figuring out anything . . .well, Maigret happened to believe that men and their passions are the same everywhere.

Maigret is touring the United States to observe American policing methods, when a visit to a coroner’s inquest in Arizona draws him into the tragic story of a young woman and five airmen in the desert.

‘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
