Summary
People find Mr Hire strange, disconcerting. The tenants he shares his building with try to avoid him. He is a peeping Tom, a visitor of prostitutes, a dealer in unsavoury literature. He is also the prime suspect for a brutal murder that he did not commit. Yet Mr Hire's innocence will not stand in the way of those looking for a scapegoat. Georges Simenon's quietly devastating and deeply unnerving novel is a chilling portrayal of tragic love, persecution and betrayal
