Mystery | Holiday
In this delightful holiday-themed collection of nine
short stories, Inspector Maigret must solve a series of
little mysteriesâ€”just in time for Christmas morning
Christmas mysteries abound in this light-hearted holiday
collection of Jules Maigretâ€™s exploits: In one, an otherwise
sensible little girl insists that she has seen Father
Christmas, a statement alarming to her neighbors, Monsieur
and Madame Maigret. Then, a choirboy helps the inspector
solve a crime while he lies in bed with a cold; another boy,
pursued by a criminal, ingeniously leaves a trail to help
Maigret track him. Many of these stories feature observant
and resourceful children, frightened yet resolute, who bring
out a paternal streak in the childless Maigret.
The rapport between the inspector and these youthful heroes
imparts a delightful freshness to this holiday collection.
A Maigret Christmas is a cornucopia for fans of
Maigret and mysteries alike.
