Georges Simenon’s The Accomplices

Like Hitchcock, who crafted a formality and dignity that cloaked a devilish (some have said fiendish) sense of humor, Georges Simenon was often pictured as a genial pipe-smoker.  He was actually a master of the Dark Side, and explored motivations and behavior that lay on the far side of noir.  The Accomplices is a gray and gritty novel that I nevertheless read in two sittings.
