"A classic among Simenon, this is the story of Maigret's night vigil at the Three Widows Crossroads, where the body of a Jewish diamond-merchant had been found. Pompous M. 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."
