From the Back Cover:

"Maigret . . . ranks with Holmes and Poirot in the pantheon of fictional detective immortals." -- People

Cecile Pardon, a young woman who shares an apartment with her elderly aunt, makes repeated visits to the Qual des Orfevres, patiently but relentlessly complaining to Maigret of strange shifts in the position of her aunt's belongings during the night. After a while, the Inspector begins to believe that Cecile's imagination might be better than her memory. But when not one but two murders are committed, Maigret must sort through tawdry family history to get to the bottom of the crimes.

"Simenon is . . . in a class by himself." -- The New Yorker
