Maigret et les vieillards originally appeared in 1960. It came out in English translation as Maigret in Society in 1962 and eight reissues with the same title followed through 1994The translator then was Robert Eglesfield, and the translator for this newly entitled Penguin edition is Shaun Whiteside. 
The original work was the 84th in Simenon’s order of publication, and this work is the 56th in Penguin’s modern series of translations. 
This novel presents a powerful love story! And, once again, one sees Maigret uncomfortable in the world of high society. Simenon also focuses on aging and humanity. Finally, some nice police work leads to a nifty twist at the end.
