One of the worldís most successful crime writers, Georges Simenon has thrilled mystery lovers around the world since 1931 with his matchless creation Inspector Maigret. Seventy-five years later, the incomparable Maigret mysteries make their Penguin debut with three of his most compelling cases.
Set in the oppressively squalid streets of Paris, A Manís Head features Simenonís famed detective as he tracks a killer on the run, while the writerís sharp prose evokes the atmosphere of Parisian luxury hotels, seedy bars, and dark alleys.
