Livres en VO
A small French summer resort has, in winter, become the gloomy scene of a series of murder attempts. While his assistant uses "scientific" means of detection, Maigret relies on his instincts, which lead him past a succession of charcters to the real culprit.
Madame Thouret had no trouble identifying her husband's body. What puzzled her was that he was wearing light brown shoes and a garish tie she'd never seen before. This story reconstructs the secret life of a vulnerable man who has made a desperate attempt to evade the failure and isolation of his rigidly conventional life.
