In "The Friend of Madame Maigret," Simenon''s economic prose brilliantly portrays the Marais quarter of Paris and those who haunt its narrow streets as Inspector Maigret attempts to prove that a murder has actually been committed without a corpse anywhere to be found. As the investigation becomes increasingly complex, seemingly unconnected characters are drawn into the case, and Maigret begins to wonder if his wife''s earlier strange encounter with a woman and her baby may be the missing link.
From the Publisher:
Maigret becomes increasingly frustrated as his attempts to prove that a brutal, repulsive murder has been committed at a local bookbinder prove fruitless, in a mystery that revolves around a series of seemingly unconnected incidents and characters, set amongst the backdrop of the Marais district in Paris, in which Madame Maigret holds the vital clue.

Author Bio
Georges Simenon
The son of an insurance salesman, Georges Simenon was born in Liege, Belgium and worked as a baker, bookstore clerk, and journalist before becoming an internationally best-selling writer. The author of over 200 novels, Simenon emigrated to Paris in 1923 and eventually earned his reputation as the creator of Inspector Maigret, the Paris policeman who first appeared in "The Strange Case of Peter the Lett" (1931). The Maigret series focuses on the psychological motivations of his characters and the many repercussions of their often psychotic, disturbed behavior. An avid traveler, Simenon published his autobiography, "When I Was Old" in 1970, claiming in it that he had slept with more than 20,000 women throughout his life. He eventually settled down in Lausanne, Switzerland in the late 1950s.
