Maigret’s past comes to life in this vivid new translation of this evocative novel, set in the Inspector’s home town. Book thirteen in the new Penguin Maigret series. Translated by Shaun Whiteside.

Maigret savoured the sensations of his youth again: the cold, stinging eyes, frozen fingertips, an aftertaste of coffee. Then, stepping inside the church, a blast of heat, soft light; the smell of candles and incense.

The last time Maigret went home to the village of his birth was for his father’s funeral. Now an anonymous note predicting a crime during All Souls’ Day mass draws him back there, where troubling memories resurface and hidden vices are revealed.

This novel has been published in a previous translation as Maigret Goes Home.
