Translated by Eileen Ellenbogen
"For six months a plain young woman had been pestering Maigret with the complain that the furniture in her apartment, shared with an aunt, mysteriously shifted position at night. Everyone at police headquarters was convinced it was all imagination, and they teased Maigret about his 'girl friend.' Her endless patience got on his nerves, and even her spinsterish look irritated him. No wonder he put off seeing her on a particularly busy day. It was a postponement he came to regret.
As Maigret endeavors to solve a case in which he considers himself guilty, he must reconstruct events that have gathered dust for years, wade through interrogations of witnesses who want to mislead him, and try to get inside the mind of a greedy, mistrustful old woman."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
