Presents 50 novels in the "Maigret Series", each providing the pipe-smoking detective with an interesting murder which the author solves with an unusual method of investigation, relying on experience, intuition and ruthlessness. This book is an example of his art.
Simenon wrote over 50 novels in the "Maigret Series", each providing the world-weary, pipe-smoking detective with an interesting murder which he solves with an unusual method of investigation, relying on experience, intuition and ruthlessness. Simenon writes in a terse French, skillfully using few words to describe things seen or felt. He is a matchless writer about France - both the France loved by tourists and its seamy, brutal underside. "The Bar on the Seine" is a classic example of his art.
