Quick, easy read. Simenon shows his knowledge of street people and other "sordid" types and handles their idiosyncrasies well. Not a deep plot, but an enjoyable read with a touch of sympathy toward the victim.

This novel keeps the reader engaged in a story of treachery while the mystery solver calmly and quietly moves through the situation to discovery who did it.
