Reader's note

Simenon's writings are always a classy and welcome addition to any bookshelf. Pietr-le-Letton was among the very earliest Simenons. It must be the most tortuous puzzle of identities ever handled by Maigret. Pietr the Lett had for years been clocked across the frontiers by Interpol : he had the personality of a chameleon. Apart from his extraordinary resemblance to the twisted corpse they found in the toilet of the Pole Star express when she drew into the Gare du Nord,he passed as Mr. Oswald Oppenheim, immaculate friend of the Martimer-Levingstons, multi-millionaires;he seemed to be Olaf Swaan, the Norwegian merchant officer of Fecamp and he was Fedor Yurovich a down-and-out Russian drunk from the Paris ghetto, to the life. Maigret needed the obstinate nose of a basset-hound to run down this dangerous international crook. This vintage book would make a delightful addition to any library.
