Night at the Crossroads by Georges Simenon

Georges Simenon books are so easy to read. There’s snippets of conversation, vivid descriptions of the countryside, and a mystery thrown in for good measure.

Maigret investigates a crime at the Three Widows Crossroads where a diamond dealer is found dead at the wheel of a car that’s in the wrong garage.

In this tale, no one is who they appear to be and yet Maigret sees through the facades and the lies to discover the truth.

The writing is simple – there’s no need for a dictionary, Simenon doesn’t try to show off or impress the reader with his vocabulary, he tells the story, sets the scene, creates the images you see in your mind, and provides enough description of the characters for your imagination to do the rest.

Recommended as usual.
