A middle aged woman, an English tourist, has disappeared. Where? Maigret's second case is a man who needs protection. He asks Maigret to have some of his men protect him from who knows. This man had been a school mate of Maigret many years ago. He was disliked at school and became a hated man. He was very wealthy and had became wealthy by taking advantage of everyone he could. He was found dead. Who murdered this man? Many would have liked to see him dead.
The second story begins in May, an exceptionally beautiful May. Maigret is called in the case of a society man, a titled man. This individual has never married but would not because he could not marry the woman he loved. He had a title but not enough money so the woman's family arranged a marriage with a wealthier man. But the two loved each other with a fairy tale love. A prince and princess, this fascinated Maigret a love that was never consumated. Both this man and the woman's husband had mistresses. So Maigret is involved in high society.
The third mystery takes place during an exceptionally cold, harsh winter. A petty crook was found dead. But was he a petty crook? Maigret knew this man slightly and liked him somewhat. The dead man was insignifigant, no one knew him. He was a quiet man who never called attention to himself. Was he as poor as everyone thought? How did he make a living? He was a drifter, moving away, then returning. Who was he?
Maigret deals with many types of people. I recommend these mysteries.
