Maigret's first impressions of the USA colour this sparkling new translation, book twenty-seven of the new Penguin Maigret series. What was it about him that had struck Maigret so forcefully? . . .

Laiva oli ehtinyt Karanteenin kohdalle kai kello neljän tienoissa aamulla ja useimmat matkustajat nukkuivat. Jotkut olivat hiukan havahtuneet ankkurin kolinaan, mutta hyvistä aikomuksistaan huolimatta vain ani harvat olivat viitsineet nousta kannelle katselemaan New Yorkin valoja.
Valtamerimatkan viimeiset tunnit olivat olleet pahimmat. Vielä nytkin, muutaman kaapelinmitan päässä Vapaudenpatsaasta, satamaan saakka vyöryvät voimakkaat mainingit kohottelivat laivaa… Satoi – tai pikemminkin tihuutti. niin että kosteus laskeutui kylmänä kaikkialle, tunkeutui joka paikkaan, teki kannen pimeäksi ja nihkeäksi ja kiilteli kaideköysissä ja – tangoissa.
Maigret oli vetänyt paksun päällystakin pyjamansa päälle heti kun koneet pysäytettiin ja noussut kannelle, missä muutama varjo liikkui edestakaisin pitkin hypähdyksin, polveillen milloin korkealla silmien yläpuolella, milloin syvällä alhaalla, sen mukaan miten laivan keula tai perä kohosi tai painui.

Can you imagine a detective who not only claims not to be intelligent but also says he never uses deductive reasoning or even forms an idea, yet solves scores of difficult cases? Well Georges Simenon could, and from 1931 to 1972 in 75 novels and half as many short stories did just that.

In “Maigret in New York” (1947), the inspector is retired, even though the novel appeared fairly early in Simenon's career. Apparently the author never expected to still be writing Maigret stories for another 25 years. His retirement is interrupted by a young American who fears for the life of his father, a wealthy American. And so Maigret, perhaps proving he is not very intelligent, boards a ship with Jean Maura and sails to New York City. When the ship docks, however, the young man promptly disappears.

The father, known by all as Little John, shows no anxiety about his son, nor about his own life. He offers to pay Maigret handsomely for his trouble and send him back to Paris. Yet the inspector is bothered by another young man who seems to speak for Little John. It isn't even clear which of the two men is actually running the juke box business responsible for Little John's fortune.

Gradually Maigret gathers information, mostly about Little John's early life as a musician in New York. He uses the services of a private detective, a depressed and alcoholic former clown who is easily the novel's best character, Maigret included. Before long the questions draw the attention of the New York underworld, and one potential witness is murdered.

All this will get the reader thinking, but Maigret just lets the various facts percolate in his brain, letting his subconscious do the work, until all is revealed with a simple phone call back to Paris.

This is not a totally satisfying mystery novel, yet it is short (just 184 pages) and interesting even when one hasn't a clue about what is going on. ( )

These are always good. Actually, I usually dislike the "(anyone) in New York" books in a series as they are usually terrible for someone like me who actually lives there, but this one held up pretty well. The gangster-y feel was a little silly, but it was of the period, lots of writing like that going on at the time. ( )

Read almost in one sitting at Wembley awaiting the start of the Forest Green Rovers v Grimsby National League final. Like Forest Green, the novel started well as the great detective is pulled out of retirement for his first visit to New York. Somehow as it progressed, the story became complicated, mechanical and got lost without the decor and flavour of France in the background. It fell away just like Forest Green. ( )

Maigret has retired to the Loire Valley but his services are still in demand. A young man is brought to see him by an elderly lawyer. Jean Maura is a law student whose father John Maura is an American millionaire living in New York. Jean has become concerned that his father's life is in danger and he wants Maigret to accompany him to New York. They embark 10 days later.

What follows is a strange investigation, made stranger by Jean Maura's disappearance from the boat when they arrive in New York. Maigret is frustrated in attempts to find him but arrival formalities and continues to the hotel without him. He has some difficulty in getting to see John Maura and is amazed at the father's seeming lack of concern at his son's disappearance.

Maigret finds that his English is not really adequate for the simplest of tasks and he calls up a French-speaking NYPD detective whom he met years before through an investigation in Paris. O'Brien provides his assistance and Maigret manages to piece together John Maura's history and eventually works out what is happening.

Simenon obviously wanted to write a novel about New York - he had recently arrived in 1947 - incorporating his own experiences and impressions, but also including comment on the influence of the Sicilian Mafia in economic affairs. There are some very strange characters in this novel, and from this distance some not-quite-believable plot lines. ( )
