When Maigret receives a visit from an old schoolmate whose mistress has been shot to death, he feels compelled to look into the case.

Translated by Eileen Ellenbogen.

"A writer who, more than any other crime novelist, combined a high literary reputation with popular appeal."-P. D . JAMES
WH E N M A I G R E T receives a visit from an old schoolmate whose mistress has been shot to death, he feels compelled to look into the case. Yet his boyhood friend is one of the suspects-along with the dead woman's four other lovers, each unknown to the others. Patiently Maigret works on his less than honest friend and a truculent concierge who knows more than she will tell. Slowly some unpleasant truths begin to surface and, in a startling finale, Maigret has no trouble seeing through the murderer's act.
