Sergio (Tipping My Fedora)

Really enjoyed the review as this is one of my favourite Maigret novels, thanks. Incidentally, glad you mentioned the really good movie with Jean Gabin as it is well worth seeking out.

Actually, Sergio, I have plans to do just that! I'll try Netflix first, but hopefully it will be available somewhere.

I'm with Sergio: MAIGRET SETS A TRAP is one of the best in the series. Excellent choice!


Haven't read this one, but it sure sounds good.

Ha. I just realized I have the book right here in front of me. (And I actually mentioned it in my Simenon non-post.) Where are my wits?

Gone on holiday. Obviously.

I think I'll reread it tonight.

No excuses for my confusion. Just sheer exhaustion on my part.


P.S. Enjoyed reading your take on the novel. I know I read it. But can't remember a thing.

Yvette, you made me laugh! I've been having a lot of "senior" moments lately, myself, and when I tried to make up a list of books I've read through the years to hopefully avoid duplication, I realized I'd forgotten many titles, too. Fortunately, this Maigret book is one that you can feel good about re-reading. :-)
