Publisher's Summary

At what point in the day could the note have been slipped into his pocket, his left breast pocket? It was an ordinary sheet of glazed squared paper, probably torn out of an exercise book. The words were written in pencil, in a regular handwriting that looked to him like a woman's.
For pity's sake, ask to see the patient in room 15.
When Inspector Maigret's wife falls ill on their seaside holiday, a visit to the hospital leads him on an unexpected quest to find justice for a young girl.

Critic Reviews

"Compelling, remorseless, brilliant." (John Gray)
"One of the greatest writers of the 20th 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)

an excellent maigret

I've read quite a few Maigrets but never found this in print. Has all the elements: rich atmosphere of a place, upper and lower class characters played off against each other, maigret's irritable doggedness. This narrator is excellent as well. Very good with the voices.
