"Maigret and the Gangsters finds Chief Inspector Jules Maigret of the Paris crime squad reluctantly helping the hapless Detective Lognon discover the identity of a body dumped from a passing car and immediately picked up by another, before the corpse is even cool. Maigret soon realizes he is dealing with genuine American gangsters, and everyone from Pozzo, a shady restaurateur, to ever-reliable Luigi, owner of the stylish Manhattan Bar, is warning him to back off. When Lognon himself is kidnapped the case becomes grislier than ever and a wild chase to the finsh for the honor of la patrie and the self-esteem of the unflappable, pipe-smoking Maigret."; Ex-Library; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
