|Maigret steps in when an anonymous note to the police reports that a body has been burned in a bookbinder s furnace. The thirty-fourth book in the new Penguin Maigret series. An anonymous note to the police reports that a body has been burned in the furnace of a bookbinder on the Rue de Turenne. Preliminary investigations turn up suspicious details and two human teeth of a man who d been alive not long before. Meanwhile, Madame Maigret has had a strange experience while waiting for her dentist appointment. A woman she had often met on the bench while waiting suddenly leaves her young child in Madame Maigret s care and disappears for over an hour, returning to take the child and vanishing without explanation. When Maigret s investigation is blown wide open, it seems the two incidents might be related in ways no one could have predicted."|

He makes me think of Chekhov." --William Faulkner "The greatest of all, the most genuine novelist we have had in literature." -- Andr Gide "A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness." -- The Independent (London) "Superb . . . the most addictive of writers . . . a unique teller of tales." -- The Observer (London) "Compelling, remorseless, brilliant." --John Gray "A truly wonderful writer . . . marvellously readable--lucid, simple, absolutely in tune with the work he creates." --Muriel Spark "A novelist who entered his fictional world as if he were a part of it." --Peter Ackroyd "Extraordinary masterpieces of the twentieth century." --John Banville|
