"Charles Childress, the author tapped to continue the beloved Sergeant Barnstable detective stories when the originator died, may not have been the most gifted writer in the world, but he did have his talents. Contentious, combative, and exceedingly vengeful, Childress had an unsurpassed way of making enemies Which is why, when the police write off his death as suicide, the publisher, Horace Vinson, comes to Nero Wolfe. Vinson knows all too well that in the cutthroat world of publishing, the competition can be murder. Wolfe, however, is not so easily convinced...or distracted from his more genteel pursuits. But Archie Goodwin, Wolfe’s ever-faithful friend and partner, points out that Vinson’s fee would keep the big man in beer and bouillabaisse for some time to come."

Michonnet, at one house, owned the car containing the corpse, aristocratic Carl Andersen, the Dane, owned the garage containing the car, and vulgar M. Oscar, at the service-station, simply sold petrol to all-comers. They none of them knew a thing. Then the victim's widow is shot dead at Maigret's feet, and he plunges into action to uncover a tight little criminal web with a woman at the centre of it."

He's there as a result of an anonymous note threatening that someone would die in the church at the first Mass of All Souls' Day. The arrival of the Countess de Saint-Fiacre elicits many fond memories for Maigret, and as these recollections busy his mind, she rolls from her pew to the floor-dead! Everyone is suspect in this masterful tale of aristocrats fallen on hard times."
