Publisher's Summary

'Maigret had never been comfortable in certain circles, among the wealthy bourgeoisie where he felt clumsy and awkward.... Built like a labourer, Oscar Chabut had hauled himself up into this little world through sheer hard work and, to convince himself that he was accepted, he felt the need to sleep with most of the women.'

When a wealthy wine merchant is shot in a Paris street, Maigret must investigate a long list of the ruthless businessman's enemies before he can get to the sad truth of the affair.

©1970 Georges Simenon (P)2020 Audible, Ltd

Hokey , Dreary and poorly read

I suspect this is not one of Simeon's finest - seems to be late in his career. Ladles out the tropes in a desultory fashion. I'd read an early Maigret and it was very interesting. This was just laboured and boring. The narrator came up with some quite bizarre and ill fitting voices and failed to inject much character into just about anybody.

I did like the constant references to drink and what went best with the food Maigret was eating.

I may try another - but not with this narrator
