"One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequaled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories." — The Guardian At a lavish dinner party, Inspector Maigret recounts the tale of an old case that has haunted him for years. At one of his friends' frequent dinner parties, Maigret shares the story of a case from a few years back that haunts him to this day, in which a man named Adrien Josset was found guilty and was executed for the murder of his wife, Christine. Adrien had been a weak-willed, mild-mannered man, but Christine, who was much wealthier than he, had used her connections to land him an influential position in an important career. Maigret had interviewed Adrien only once when the examining magistrate took over the case and successfully moved to have him executed. But though all the clues pointed to Adrien's guilt, Maigret remained unconvinced, and years later, he still doubts the murderer's true identity. Maigret's Secret is a thought-provoking dive into the machinations of justice, and the ways in which they can sweep away an innocent man's life.
