'Compelling, remorseless, brilliant' John Gray 'Try to imagine a guest, a wealthy woman, staying at the Majestic with her husband, her son, a nurse and a governess . . . In a suite that costs more than a thousand francs a day . . . At six in the morning, she's strangled, not in her room, but in the basement locker room'Below stairs at a glamorous hotel on the Champs-Elysees, the workers' lives are worlds away from the luxury enjoyed by the wealthy guests.

When their worlds meet, Maigret discovers a tragic story of ambition, blackmail and unrequited love. This novel has been published in a previous translation as Maigret and the Hotel Majestic. '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
