Maigret's Patience

Inspector Maigret #64




Maigret investigates the murder of a criminal he had known for twenty years

Maigret finds himself back on the Rue des Acacias just ten days after cracking another case there. This time it is the murder of a criminal Maigret has known for over twenty 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.

A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness
