Maurice Denham is the famous French detective Maigret and Michael Gough is his creator Georges Simenon in these five classic radio dramatisations. Parisian detective Jules Maigret first appeared in print in 1931, and went on to feature in 76 novels and 28 short stories. An enduringly popular character, his adventures have been adapted on radio and television, most recently in ITV's series starring Rowan Atkinson. In these radio plays, Maigret and Simenon look back over five of their most memorable cases. An anonymous letter sends Maigret back to the village where he grew up, Inspector Lapointe falls in love for the first time - and kills someone for the first time, and a model train seller tells Maigret that his wife is trying to poison him. Plus, how is the death of a Count linked to a collection of love letters? And can Maigret's carefully prepared plan prevent the latest in a string of serial killings? First broadcast in 1976 on BBC Radio 4, the episodes included in this collection are: Maigret Goes Home Maigret in Montmartre Maigret has Scruples Maigret in Society Maigret Sets a Trap Classic Radio Crime: presenting vintage detectives for your investigation!
