Maigret’s Failure, Penguin’s English translation of Simenon’s Un échec de Maigret will be available through Amazon.co.uk as of November 2, 2017. Both paperback and Kindle editions are being released.
Because the paperback edition will not be available from Amazon.com until June 5, 2018, the opportunity for early delivery of it from the UK to the USA will appeal to some. Notably, the Kindle edition will be available November 2, 2017.
As well, November 2, 2017 holds as the release date from the following other Amazon sources: Australia Kindle; Canada Kindle; France Kindle; Germany Kindle; India Kindle; Italy paperback and Kindle; Japan Kindle; Mexico Kindle; Netherlands Kindle; Spain paperback and Kindle.
Unfortunately, the later June 5, 2018 release date pertains to these remaining Amazon sources: Brazil Kindle; Canada paperback; China paperback; France paperback; Germany paperback; Japan paperbackMexico paperback.
Be aware the ISBN-13 for this new edition is 978-0241303788, which should facilitate searching for the book from various other sources. 
Un échec de Maigret originally appeared in 1956. It first came out in English translation in 1962 as Maigret’s Failure with six subsequent re-editions. Its translator was Daphne Woodward then, and the translator for this new Penguin edition is William Hobson.
The original work was the 77th in Simenon’s order of publication, and this work is the 49th in Penguin’s modern series of translations. 
This novel is interesting for several reasons. A childhood classmate Maigret never liked, Ferdinand Fumal surfaces out of the blue, demanding and getting his help. Maigret returns to where he grew up and refreshed memories abound. His increasingly hateful antagonist is soon murdered and suspects abound here, too, because nobody in the village liked the man. Maigret dutifully and methodically sorts things out, but his speed allows the killer to escape for five years thereafterWas that deliberate or unconscious on Maigret’s part?
