Description


When an old woman contacts Maigret, sure she's about to be killed, Maigret has no reason to believe her--other than his intuition

A kind but seemingly paranoid old lady turns to Inspector Maigret for help, believing someone has been in her apartment. Things have been moved around, she says, and she can feel the presence of the uknown intruder. Against the judgment of his subordinates, who insist the woman is imagning things, Maigret decides to pay a visit to her Parisian apartment to investigate--but is he already too late?

Forcing the reader to question whomexactly we can trust, Maigret's Madwoman is a terrific mystery from the master Georges Simenon.
