Book reviews - The Patience Of Maigret

The Patience Of Maigret


Author: Georges Simenon
Inspector Maigret is working on connecting an old nemesis to a string of robberies, but when the man is found dead, he must turn instead to hunting down his killer

Maigret finds himself back on the Rue des Acacias just ten days after cracking another case there. This time, he is tasked with solving the murder of a criminal he has known for more than twenty years, one he always suspected was behind a series of jewelry heists in the city. As the stakes rise, Maigret's patience is tested as he eliminates neighbor by neighbor in his hunt for the murderer.

A riveting mystery, Maigret's Patience showcases the inimitable detective's tireless mettle in the pursuit of the truth.
