A local scandal intrudes on Maigret's seaside holiday in book twenty-eight of the new Penguin Maigret series. At what point in the day could the note have been slipped into his pocket, his left breast pocket? It was an ordinary sheet of glazed squared paper, probably torn out of an exercise book. The words were written in pencil, in a regular handwriting that looked to him like a woman's. For pity's sake, ask to see the patient in room 15. When Inspector Maigret's wife falls ill on their seaside holiday, a visit to the hospital leads him on an unexpected quest to find justice for a young girl.

This is a nice little mystery that can be read in a day. Inspector Maigret's wife falls suddenly ill while they are on vacation at Les Sables d'Olonne, a seaside town in western France. As she recuperates in a Catholic hospital, Maigret wanders about listlessly until one of the nuns slips a note into his pocket that reads "For pity's sake, ask to see the patient in room 15."

I'm glad I gave George Simenon's books another chance after being less than impressed with "The Shadow Puppet".

Commendations to Penguin and translators for fulfilling my dream to read every one of the Maigret mysteries.
" A truly wonderful writer....marvellously readable-lucid, simple, absolutely in tune with the world he creates." Muriel Spark
