Overview

“One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequaled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories.” —The Guardian

When Inspector Maigret’s .45 revolver is stolen from his home, he becomes embroiled in a murder in which the gun may have played a deadly role

Maigret is the victim of a burglary in which the .45 revolver he had received as a gift from the FBI is stolen. That evening Maigret attends a dinner where François Lagrange, an acquaintance of Maigret’s friend, is expected but fails to appear due to ill health. Following his instincts, Maigret decides to investigate Lagrange’s absence and uncovers a body stowed in a trunk, as well as Lagrange, who refuses to talk and seems to have lost his mind. Only Maigret can uncover the truth—and the fateful role his revolver may have played.

After an agitated visitor to Maigret's apartment steals the revolver that Maigret had left on his mantle, the famous detective must deduce the link between that and the discovery of a body in a trunk. We meet a pathetic man who might have committed the murder. Maigret travels to London to interview a suspect and locate the young man who has his revolver. There are virtually no red herrings and Maigret makes the correct deductions in each case. Overall a competent tale of somewhat ingenious detection, but flat charaterization, the attitude toward women, and a dearth of excitement detract from the book's quality.
