Sailors don't talk much to other men in this insular fishing community, especially not to policemen. But after Captain Fallut's body is found floating near his trawler, they all mention the Evil Eye when they speak of the Ocean's voyage. To discover the truth about this doomed expedition, Maigret enters a remote, murky world of men on the margins of society, where fierce loyalties hide sordid deeds.

Thanks to Midland staff for including this in Staff Picks. Was not aware of these new translations, so was delighted to see these. My favorite fiction writer-NOT for action lovers. Simenon's mysteries are more character sketches. The Maigret mysteries fulfill Simenon's motto: "understand and judge not"
