The body of a well-known Parisian restaurateur turns up on Avenue Junot in Montmartre, seemingly having been killed elsewhere.

Reviews for Maigret and the Informer (#74 Inspector Maigret)

The most addictive of writers . . . a unique teller of tales * Observer * A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness * Independent * 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 *
