"A vintage Maigret that takes the reader behind the scenes in a Paris luxury hotel.. Prosper, a failed waiter and now the breakfast cook, discovers the corpse of a hotel guest, the French wife of an American businessman, and immediately becomes the prime suspect. Maigret, from homicide, has his doubts about the obvious. Always compassionate toward the underdog, he decides to study the subterranean labyrinth where the hotel's services are located; he inspects entries and exits, charts routines, and discovers various irregularities, unnerving the staff with his persistent presence. He does not neglect the guest floors, either, and creates a scene among the elegant dancers in the tearoom. Using the setting to fine effect, Simenon has created an absorbing mystery that is now also a piece of nostalgia for the Paris that once was." Translated by Caroline Hillier.; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
