A gripping tale of small town suspicion and revengepart of Penguin’s series of fantastic new Inspector Maigret translations

“There was an exaggerated humility about her. And yet he sensed, beneath that image, glints of pride held firmly in check. She was anaemic. Her flat chest was not formed to rouse desire. Nevertheless, she was strangely appealing, perhaps because she seemed troubled, despondent, sickly.”

In the coastal town of Concarneau, a local wine merchant is shot. Maigret soon realizes that Emma, a downtrodden waitress, is hiding something and that the mysterious yellow dog lurking around town may be the key to solving this crime.

With this tense crime story—the sixth Maigret novel—Georges Simenon moves beyond the genre, creating a richly evocative psychological landscape with haunting insights into the dark corners of human nature.
