Maigret et les braves gens originally appeared in 1962. It came out in English translation as Maigret and the Black Sheep in 1975 and six reissues with the same title followed through 1983. The translator then was Helen Thomson, and the translator for this newly entitled Penguin edition is Roz Schwartz. 
The original work was the 86th in Simenon’s order of publication, and this work is the 58th in Penguin’s modern series of translations. 
This murder mystery presents Maigret with the problem of a good man shot to death amid a family of good people with good alibis. Wondering who would kill someone so well liked, but convinced the killer is in the family circle and suspecting a cover-up, the Chief Inspector works hard for the answer.
