When an ominous note predicting the time and place of a death finds its way to Maigret's desk in Paris, his investigation brings him to Saint-Faicre, the place of his birth. It isn't long before a darkness descends on Maigret and the town, as the prediction becomes a brutal reality and the Inspector discovers he is not welcome in the place he once called home.
As much a thriller as a meditation on alienation, The Saint-Faicre Affair displays Simenon's unique and searing perspective of the struggles we all are forced to endure.
Georges Simenon was born in Liège, Belgium, in 1903.
