Maigret Hesitates, Penguin’s English translation of Simenon’s Maigret hésite will be available through Amazon.co.uk as of May 2, 2019 in both paperback and Kindle editions. Fortunately, delivery to the USA is available because the release date for the paperback and Kindle edition through Amazon.com is January 7, 2020.

August 20, 2019 is the release date from this source: Australia paperback
January 7, 2020 is the release date from these sources: Canada paperback and Kindle edition; Germany paperback; Mexico Kindle.
Note: The English paperback does not appear as forthcoming on many of the Amazon sites worldwide. Hopefully, this is just a glitch of short term duration.  
Maigret hésite originally appeared in 1968. The first English translation came out as Maigret Hesitates in 1969. Nine subsequent editions followed through 1993. The translator for all was Lyn Moir, and the translator for this new Penguin edition is Howard Curtis. 
Be aware the ISBN-13 for this most recent edition is 978-0241304198, which should facilitate searching for this exact book from various other sources. 
The original work was the 96th in Simenon’s order of publication, and this work is the 67th in Penguin’s modern series of translations. 
The hook? Maigret receives a mysterious anonymous letter announcing an impending murder. The victim is not identified, and the timing is not specified. The unusually expensive high quality letter paper allows the Chief Inspector to trace its origin precisely. The challenge then becomes uncovering a potential victim and murderer—before the event—among a group of eleven people who function in the same household.
