Madame Maigret's Own Case

Georges Simenon. Mariner Books, $6 (182pp) ISBN 978-0-15-655106-9

Investigating a Belgian emigre bookbinder accused of murder, Chief Inspector Maigret gets help from Mme. Maigret, who accidentally befriends a woman and little boy connected to the case. According to PW , ``This tale is looser in plot than other Maigret mysteries, but, like them, displays Simenon's convincing evocation of his hero's world.'' (Oct.)
