About this title

Synopsis:

Maigret, accompanying his physician on an emergency call, is drawn into one of his most stubborn cases yet. The victim, a son of a wealthy perfume manufacturer, had been enjoying an odd hobby before his death: collecting human voices with a tape recorder, often in the rougher districts of Paris. But his wallet and his tape recorder have been left untouched, so the killer's motive is unclear. The absence of clues begins to exasperate Maigret until an anonymous letter reveals that he is dealing with no ordinary criminal.

From the Back Cover:

"A writer who, more than any other crime novelist, combined a high literary reputation with popular appeal."-P. D . JAMES

The investigation of a murder with no apparent motive pushes Maigret to look beyond the simple question of guilt and innocence.
