Maigret and the Reluctant Witness




Maigret struggles to crack a victim's uncooperative family to uncover the truth behind his murder in book fifty-three of the series.

It was as if suddenly, long ago, life had stopped here, not the life of the man lying on the bed but the life of the house, the life of its world, and even the factory chimney that could be seen through the curtains looked obsolete and absurd.

A once-wealthy family closes ranks when one of their own is shot, leaving Maigret - along with a troublesome new magistrate - to pick his way through their secrets.
