Summary

'In Porquerolles, things were hostile to him. He had tried in vain to tame them. Back there, all the time, he had felt as if there was a tremendous chaos around him, a kind of life that was too vivid, so that the slightest contact with it made his blood pulse more quickly, and prompted a rising fever inside him.'

During his first holiday on the island of Porquerolles Dr Mahe caught a glimpse of something irresistible. As the memory continues to haunt him, he falls prey to a delusion that may offer an escape from his conventional existence - or may destroy him. This is the first English translation of The Mahe Circle, a dark, malevolent depiction of an ordinary man trapped in mundanity and consumed by obsession.

One of Simenon's critically renowned and psychologically rich romans durs,  The Mahé Circle will delight lifelong fans and new readers alike.
