‘Powerful . . . unputdownably gripping’ Guardian

‘The island itself. Its throbbing heat as if in a belljar under the sun, the scorpion in his son’s bed, the deafening sound of cicadas’

During his first holiday on the island of Porquerolles Dr Mahe caught a glimpse of something irresistible. As the memory continues to haunt him, he falls prey to a delusion that may offer an escape from his conventional existence – or may destroy him. This is the first English translation of The Mahe Circle, Simenon’s dark, malevolent depiction of an ordinary man trapped in mundanity and consumed by obsession.

‘Extraordinary . . . Simenon is one of the most important writers of the 20th century’ Independent
