The art of crimeHaving returned home late after grinding a confession out of a young lad Maigret is wakened early to the news that a fellow police officer Inspector Lognon has been shot in Avenue Junot He’s still hanging on to life just but hasn’t been able to talk yet so Maigret has very little to go on especially since the men at Lognon’s local station don’t know what he was working on House to house inuiries soon reveal that recently Lognon has been spending his nights with a beautiful young woman in Avenue Junot Somehow though Maigret can’t see him as a Lothario and suspects there must have been another reason for these nocturnal adventures The easy way to find out would be to ask the young woman – but she has disappearedI’ve only read a few Maigrets so far and have enjoyed them all to varying degrees This one has leapt into the lead as my favourite so far though I’m finding it hard to put my finger on exactly why it stood out above the others I think I simply liked the plot and the motivation than usual since Simenon’s storytelling settings and characterisation tend to be consistently good in my limited experienceMaigret’s hunch soon proves to be correct that Lognon was investigating someone who lived on Avenue Junot Lognon was known as a conscientious and good detective but always unlucky This meant he always missed out on the promotions he felt he deserved and his unappealing wife was very ready to show her disappointment in him Maigret realises that Lognon was working secretly on a case hoping to break it all by himself and finally get recognition and the rewards of success Instead now he is lying in a hospital bed and his colleagues have no idea what crime he felt he had discovered Maigret and his team will have to start from scratch interviewing all the residents of the Avenue looking for suspicious or guilty behaviour Soon Maigret will find himself deep in the sometimes rather murky world of art and art collectorsIt’s very short even for a Maigret but packs a lot in It’s a police procedural rather than a whodunit in the sense that there’s no pool of suspects Maigret soon hones in on Lognon’s target but the uestion is what crime did Lognon think had been committed and why was he shot The clues are given gradually and I for once had a pretty good idea of where the story was going but that didn’t prevent my enjoyment of watching Maigret’s steady and relentless pursuit of the truth We also see uite a bit of Maigret’s wife in this one and while she is treated rather as if she as intelligent pet rather than an eual it’s nice to see how much Maigret loves her And I must admit the amount of alcohol that Maigret slurps down during every investigation always entertains me – even during interviews with suspects in the police station the booze flows freely Makes me kinda wish I was French ;Great stuff – a uick read short enough to be devoured in one session if so inclined and both interesting and entertaining Highly recommendedwwwfictionfanblogwordpresscom

Maigret et le fantômeS from the operating room The apparition leads Maigret et Kindle Maigret to the highest echelons of the Parisian art world and the depths of greed and crueltyMaigret is a registered trademark of the Estate of Georges Simenon. Thank you Penguin Books for the free copyMaigret and the Ghost is the first novel I've read by Simenon indeed the first time I'd even heard his name This almost novella length story is set in Paris where the nearly fatal shooting of a police officer leads Maigret to uncover a fantastic scheme Maigret is authoritative patient in love with his wife and dedicated to his profession He chafes at the desk job where his leadership position often lands him and finds excuses to get back into the fieldFor me this felt like a perfect uick cozy mystery read not 'cozy' in the sense of sentimental or uaint but one I could curl up with and inhale I was fascinated to learn that Simenon wrote dozens of Maigret novels which Penguin is re issuing in English translation So it's nice to know there will be plenty Maigret for me to enjoy in the years to come
