Three vintage Maigret novels by legendary mystery author Georges Simenon
One of the world 's most successful crime writers, Georges Simenon has thrilled mystery lovers since 1931 with his matchless creation Inspector Maigret. In "My Friend Maigret," Inspector Maigret investigates the murder of a small- time crook on a Mediterranean island. Told in Simenon's spare, unsentimental prose, "Inspector Cadaver" is a haunting exploration of provincial hypocrisy and snobbery, in which Maigret encounters a rival sleuth from his past. In "Maigret and the Man on the Boulevard," Simenon's tenacious detective pieces together the life of a man who for three years lived a secret life-until he is found stabbed to death in an alleyway.

About the author

Biography of Simenon, Georges

The prolific Belgian-born writer Georges Simenon produced hundreds of fictional works under his own name and 17 pseudonyms, in addition to more than 70 books about Inspector Maigret, long "the favorite sleuth of highbrow detective-story readers" (SR). More than 50 "Simenons" have been made into films. In addition to his mystery stories, he wrote what he called "hard" books, the serious psychological novels numbering well over 100. The autobiographical Pedigree, set in his native town of Liege, is perhaps his finest work.

The publication of Simenon's intimate memoirs also attracted considerable attention. Simenon himself once said that he would never write a "great novel". Yet Gide called him "a great novelist, perhaps the greatest and truest novelist we have in French literature today", and Thornton Wilder (see Vol. 1) found that Simenon's narrative gift extends "to the tips of his fingers". The following are some of Simenon's novels, exclusive of the Maigret detective stories, that are in print.
