Summary

'You see, I mainly work at night. I've ended up getting to know everybody. They're used to me in Pigalle, I exchange a few words with this person or that person. I go into the bars and cabarets where they give me a quarter bottle of Vichy without waiting for me to order anything.'

An anonymous tip-off regarding the death of a restaurant owner sends Maigret into the world of Parisian nightlife, a notorious criminal gang and a man known as 'the Flea'.

This novel has been pubished in a previous translation as Maigret and the Flea.

Engaging

As always the superb performance from Gareth tops off Simeons work so beautifully.

This story is amongst the very best Maigrets and I simply had to finish it in one sitting, COVID Lockdown does have the occasional benefit, so be prepared to spend 3 hours of so with Gareth and Maigret.

Simenon does it again.

One of the best Maigrets. Although predictable, the author makes certain that it’s exiting to the end.
And, of course, Gareth is, predictably, among the top 3 performing artists.
