Maigret et les témoins récalcitrants originally appeared in 1959. It came out in English translation in 1960 as Maigret and the Reluctant WitnessesThe translator then was Daphne Woodward, and the translator for this new Penguin edition is William Hobson. 
The original work was the 81st in Simenon’s order of publication, and this work is the 53rd in Penguin’s modern series of translations. 
This novel becomes interesting as the “witnesses” are identified as more than “reluctant.” Problems develop in false clues and missing evidence. In addition, Maigret conflicts with the younger examining magistrate in managing the investigation, and being bothered by people in superior positions, especially if they are younger, is not new for him.
