A forgotten crime comes to light in the Parisian summer in Georges Simenon’s twisted tale. Book eleven in the new Penguin Maigret series. Translated by David Watson.

‘A radiant late afternoon. The sunshine almost as thick as syrup in the quiet streets of the Left Bank . . .

there are days like this, when ordinary life seems heightened, when the people walking down the street, the trams and cars all seem to exist in a fairy tale.

A story told by a condemned man leads Maigret to a bar by the Seine and into the sleazy underside of respectable Parisian life. In the oppressive heat of summer, a forgotten crime comes to light.

This novel is a revised translation, previously published as The Bar on the Seine.
