The dark side of glamorous expat life in Paris is brought to life in this new translation, book twenty-one in the new Penguin Maigret series. Translated by Howard Curtis.

Try to imagine a guest, a wealthy woman, staying at the Majestic with her husband, her son, a nurse and a governess … In a suite that costs more than a thousand francs a day … At six in the morning, she’s strangled, not in her room, but in the basement locker room … In all likelihood, that’s where the crime was committed … What was the woman doing in the basement? … Who could have lured her down there, and how? … Especially at an hour when people of that kind are usually still fast asleep

This novel has been published in a previous translation as Maigret and the Hotel Majestic.
