"Despite the expensively elegant stationery, Inspector Maigret had given the anonymous letter very little thought. He was accustomed to receiving crank mail that spoke of unreported crimes and innocent victims. However, reading the letter more closely, he began to see something that disturbed him. . . it was the neurotic, power-crazed personality of a ruthless killer. The Inspector had no trouble tracing the stationery to the house where it came from - the sumptuous Paris establishment of an expert in Maritime Law. But from there on Maigret floundered - who had written the letter? Who was about to commit murder? And above all, who was the potential victim? The final solution came as a deadly surprise to everyone. . . including Maigret."
