Une confidence de Maigret originally appeared in 1959. It came out in English translation as Maigret Has Doubts in 1968. The translator then was Lynn Moir, and the translator for this newly entitled Penguin edition is David Watson. 
The original work was the 82nd in Simenon’s order of publication, and this work is the 54th in Penguin’s modern series of translations. 
This novel is interesting for multiple reasons: the relationship between Maigret and his only friend Pardon is on display. Their wives are compared. Martial infidelity, abortion, suicide, and murder are subjectsMaigret conflicts with ComéliauAnd, of course, the denouement informs about Maigret’s “secret.”
