"A Montmartre night club owner, Emile Boulay, is found strangled outside Père Lachaise cemetery. Inspector Maigret knows it cannot be a professional murder. An underworld killer does not strangle his victim, nor does he keep a corpse on hand for two days in hot weather. Furthermore, the dead man appears to have had no enemies - serious, hard-working, on the right side of the law, even paying his income tax with scrupulous honesty. There are no clues, except for an unexplained check for a large sum written by Boulay just before his death. It is irritating enough that Maigret has to work unusually hard to arrive at the identity of the murderer, and still harder to find a reason for the crime, but when he realizes that his own spotless reputation has been exploited, he does indeed lose his temper."; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
