Publisher's Summary

A young cabaret dancer in a black silk dress leads Maigret into a seamy world of nightclubs, drug addiction and exploitation on the streets of Montmartre.
'He opened the door for her and watched her walk away down the huge corridor, then hesitate at the top of the stairs. Heads turned as she passed. You sensed she came from a different world, the world of the night, and there was something almost indecent about her in the harsh light of a winter's day.'
This novel has been published in previous translations as Maigret and the Strangled Stripper and Maigret in Montmartre.

Hasn't Aged Well

Is there anything you would change about this book?

You bet there is.

What could Georges Simenon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He was a man of his times, I suppose, but this more than any other of his novels reeks of homophobia. It really is a difficult read.

What three words best describe Gareth Armstrong’s voice?

The characters sounded much I imagined they would.

Did Maigret at Picratt's inspire you to do anything?

It did. I deleted it from my library.

Any additional comments?

I still enjoy some of the Maigret novels. But not as much as I once did.
