Maigret and the Nahour Case – Georges Simenon



‘Compelling, remorseless, brilliant’ John Gray Maigret is called to the home of professional gambler, Felix Nahour, who has been found shot dead by his chambermaid. Maigret is shocked to recognise a photo of the man’s wife who becomes the main suspect. All signs point to her guilt but Maigret suspects there might be more to this complicated affair. This novel has been published in a previous translation as Maigret on the Defensive. ‘His artistry is supreme’ John Banville ‘One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequalled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories’ Guardian
