A sparkling new transaltion of this flashback to the start of Inspector Maigret's career, part of the new Penguin Maigret series.

The profession he had always yearned for did not actually exist ... he imagined a cross between a doctor and a priest, a man capable of understanding another's destiny at first glance.

The very first investigation by eager young police secretary Jules Maigret leads him to a wealthy Paris family's dark secrets.

Penguin is publishing the entire series of Maigret novels in new translations.
