Thank you Penguin Books for the free copyMaigret and the Ghost is the first novel I ve read by Simenon indeed the first time I d even heard his name This almost novella length story is set in Paris where the nearly fatal shooting of a police officer leads Maigret to uncover a fantastic scheme Maigret is authoritative patient in love with his wife and dedicated to his profession He chafes at the desk job where his leadership position often lands him and finds excuses to get back into the fieldFor me this felt like a perfect uick cozy mystery read not cozy in the sense of sentimental or uaint but one I could curl up with and inhale I was fascinated to learn that Simenon wrote dozens of Maigret novels which Penguin is re issuing in English translation So it s nice to know there will be plenty Maigret for me to enjoy in the years to come

CHARACTERS ✓ Maigret et le fantôme Maigret arrives home exhausted after cracking an especially difficult case only to be awakened within hours by the news of a nearly successful attempt on the life of a colleague Plainclothes detective Lagnon known to Ma. A complicated tale of money and corruption However before that it appears a seedy affair which will finally bring disgrace to the police forceEveryone who has followed the Maigret novels knows that the chief inspector has a soft spot for inspector Lognon Always the fall guy a hard working detective who never gets the plaudits or credit in a case he s workSuddenly this hard done by police officer has been inventing overtime misleading his wife and spending evenings in the apartment of young womanBefore the scandal could be broken Lognon has been attacked in a drive by shooting that leaves him at death s door and in a coma with a poor prognosisThe woman he has been seeing has disappeared and despite the local tongues wagging Maigret has to reconstruct what has happened other than a jealous lover gaining some revenge no one knows what Lognon was up to professionally or on the sideMaigret is meticulous in his reconstruction his men work flat out in their delegated duties He isn t content to manage from his office he needs to understand the milieu of those involved as his focus moves from the street of the shooting on the doorstep of the girl s apartment block to an elegant property which could be seen from within her roomsThis change of emphasis is best on a belief that it as a professional hit and that Lognon was carrying out a personal investigation which he kept secret to ensure all the credit would be his when he cracked the caseAll the familiar aspects of Maigret in charge of an operation are here the mystery is just beyond him as he lacks any evidence but he is relentless in his pressure for the truth No one resents the longer hours or favours being called in for it s for a fallen colleagueI love Maigret s determination his uncanny rooting out of evidence and his pressing of witnesses Even in a field he feels lost he soldiers on and tries to understand what he is confrontingAbove all I love the gentle moments of time with his wife and their special lunch togetherSimenon writes so well the book reads itself and the stories are satisfying and memorable

REVIEW Maigret et le fantôme

CHARACTERS ✓ Maigret et le fantôme Igret as Inspector Hopeless has become involved beyond his depth in an international art fraud and is suffering the conseuences Maigret's only clue to Lagnon's assailant is the single word apparition spoken by the victi. The art of crimeHaving returned home late after grinding a confession out of a young lad Maigret is wakened early to the news that a fellow police officer Inspector Lognon has been shot in Avenue Junot He s still hanging on to life just but hasn t been able to talk yet so Maigret has very little to go on especially since the men at Lognon s local station don t know what he was working on House to house inuiries soon reveal that recently Lognon has been spending his nights with a beautiful young woman in Avenue Junot Somehow though Maigret can t see him as a Lothario and suspects there must have been another reason for these nocturnal adventures The easy way to find out would be to ask the young woman but she has disappearedI ve only read a few Maigrets so far and have enjoyed them all to varying degrees This one has leapt into the lead as my favourite so far though I m finding it hard to put my finger on exactly why it stood out above the others I think I simply liked the plot and the motivation than usual since Simenon s storytelling settings and characterisation tend to be consistently good in my limited experienceMaigret s hunch soon proves to be correct that Lognon was investigating someone who lived on Avenue Junot Lognon was known as a conscientious and good detective but always unlucky This meant he always missed out on the promotions he felt he deserved and his unappealing wife was very ready to show her disappointment in him Maigret realises that Lognon was working secretly on a case hoping to break it all by himself and finally get recognition and the rewards of success Instead now he is lying in a hospital bed and his colleagues have no idea what crime he felt he had discovered Maigret and his team will have to start from scratch interviewing all the residents of the Avenue looking for suspicious or guilty behaviour Soon Maigret will find himself deep in the sometimes rather murky world of art and art collectorsIt s very short even for a Maigret but packs a lot in It s a police procedural rather than a whodunit in the sense that there s no pool of suspects Maigret soon hones in on Lognon s target but the uestion is what crime did Lognon think had been committed and why was he shot The clues are given gradually and I for once had a pretty good idea of where the story was going but that didn t prevent my enjoyment of watching Maigret s steady and relentless pursuit of the truth We also see uite a bit of Maigret s wife in this one and while she is treated rather as if she as intelligent pet rather than an eual it s nice to see how much Maigret loves her And I must admit the amount of alcohol that Maigret slurps down during every investigation always entertains me even during interviews with suspects in the police station the booze flows freely Makes me kinda wish I was French Great stuff a uick read short enough to be devoured in one session if so inclined and both interesting and entertaining Highly recommendedwwwfictionfanblogwordpresscom
