'The father of contemporary European detective fiction' Ann Cleeves 'A radiant late afternoon. The sunshine almost as thick as syrup in the quiet streets of the Left Bank . . . there are days like this, when ordinary life seems heightened, when the people walking down the street, the trams and cars all seem to exist in a fairy tale.' A story told by a condemned man leads Maigret to a bar by the Seine and into the sleazy underside of respectable Parisian life. In the oppressive heat of summer, a forgotten crime comes to light. Penguin is publishing the entire series of Maigret novels in new translations. This novel is a revised translation, previously published as The Bar on the Seine. 'Compelling, remorseless, brilliant' John Gray '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 'A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness' Independent

Praise for Georges Simenon: "One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequaled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories." --The Guardian "These Maigret books are as timeless as Paris itself." --The Washington Post "Maigret ranks with Holmes and Poirot in the pantheon of fictional detective immortals." --People "I love reading Simenon. He makes me think of Chekhov." --William Faulkner "The greatest of all, the most genuine novelist we have had in literature." --Andr Gide "A supreme writer . . . Unforgettable vividness." --The Independent (London) "Superb . . . The most addictive of writers . . . A unique teller of tales." --The Observer (London) "Compelling, remorseless, brilliant." --John Gray "A truly wonderful writer . . . Marvelously readable--lucid, simple, absolutely in tune with the world he creates." --Muriel Spark "A novelist who entered his fictional world as if he were a part of it."lle --Peter Ackroyd "Extraordinary masterpieces of the twentieth century." --John Banville
