Description


One of the world's most successful crime writers, Georges Simenon has thrilled mystery lovers around the world since 1931 with his matchless creation Inspector Maigret. In "The Bar on the Seine," Maigret must visit a prisoner he arrested and bear the news that his reprieve has been refused and he will be executed at dawn. But when the condemned man tells Maigret a story, his investigations lead him to the Guinguette a Deux Sous, a bar by the River Seine, and into the seamy underside of bourgeois Parisian life.

Praise For…


Maigret ranks with Holmes and Poirot in the pantheon of fictional detective immortals. (People)

Simenon created one of the great moral detectives . . . a master of the slow unfolding of the criminal mind. (John Mortimer)
