Maigret's Christmas

Mariner Books, November 2003. Trade Paperback. Used - Very Good. Item #292757
ISBN: 0156028530

Nine short stories make up this delightful holiday-themed collection, each featuring Georges Simenon's famous

detective, Jules Maigret. Christmas mysteries abound: an otherwise sensible little girl insists that she has seen Father Christmas, a statement alarming to her neighbors, Monsieur and Madame Maigret. Then, a choirboy helps the inspector solve a crime while he lies in bed with a cold; another boy, pursued by a criminal, ingeniously leaves a trail to help Maigret track him. Many of these stories feature observant and resourceful children, frightened yet resolute, who bring out a paternal streak in the childless Maigret. The rapport between the inspector and these youthful heroes imparts a delightful freshness to this holiday collection-

a cornucopia for fans of Maigret and mysteries.
