Maigret and the Reluctant Witnesses

£7.99

Maigret is called to the home of the Lachaume family where the eldest brother has been found shot dead. On Maigret’s arrival the family close ranks and claim to have heard nothing at the time of the murder. Maigret must pick his way through the family’s web of lies, secrets and deceit as well as handle Angelot, a troublesome new breed of magistrate who has waded into the case. The black sheep of the family, Veronique, finally gives Maigret the break he needs when she reveals the financial woes of the family and the depths to which they have sunk to salvage their reputation.

Description

‘His artistry is supreme’ John Banville

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.
