“One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequaled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories.” —The GuardianAn Inspector Maigret mystery that brings the dark side of glamorous expat life in Paris to lifeIn this riveting mystery from Georges Simenon, Maigret must investigate the murder of Mrs. Clark, the wife of a wealthy American industrialist, whose strangled body is found in the basement of an upscale hotel near the Champs-Élysées. Maigret’s inquiries take him from the endless corridors of the Hotel Majestic to the countryside of the Bois de Boulogne and sun-drenched Cannes, into a world of illicit sex work, drug addiction, and blackmail.

display_description Try to imagine a guest, a wealthy woman, staying at the Majestic with her husband, her son, a nurse and a governess. In a suite that costs more than a thousand francs a day. At six in the morning, she's strangled, not in her room, but in the basement locker room. In all likelihood, that's where the crime was committed. What was the woman doing in the basement? Who could have lured her down there, and how? Especially at an hour when people of that kind are usually still fast asleep.
