Summary

What was it about him that had struck Maigret so forcefully? Little John had cold eyes! Four or five times in his life, he had met people with cold eyes, those eyes that can stare at you without establishing any human contact.
Persuaded to sail to New York by a fearful young law student, Maigret finds himself drawn into the city's underworld and a wealthy businessman's closely guarded past.

Critic reviews

""Compelling, remorseless, brilliant." (John Gray)
"One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century...Simenon was unequalled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories." (Guardian)
"A supreme writer...unforgettable vividness." (Independent)

Maigret is Revealed

In addition to being a crackerjack psychological thriller this story has Maigret talking through Simenon about how he goes about finding the answers that solve the problems he faces. He also has a revealing conversation with an American detective on how they each do what they do.
