A new translation of this chilling novel, set on the Belgian border. Book fourteen in the new Penguin Maigret series. Translated by Shaun Whiteside.

She wasn’t an ordinary supplicant. She didn’t lower her eyes. There was nothing humble about her bearing. She spoke frankly, looking straight ahead, as if to claim what was rightfully hers.

‘If you don’t agree to look at our case, my parents and I will be lost, and it will be the most hateful legal error…’

Maigret is asked to the windswept, rainy border town of Givet by a young woman desperate to clear her family of murder. But their well-kept shop, the sleepy community and its raging river all hide their own mysteries.

This novel has been published in a previous translation as The Flemish Shop.
