Translated by Eileen Ellenbogen. Peg Leg Lapie, a crusty old sailor, is found mysteriously murdered in a most incongruous setting: a picturesque cottage near Paris, where he lived attended only by his young housekeeper, Felicie. But Lapie was not alone, Maigret, chief inspector of the Paris police, is sure of it.

The always fascinating Maîgret is given his unique personality by the splendid recreation of Andrew Sachs, who played Manual on "Fawlty Towers." Maîgret journeys to suburban Paris to investigate the murder of Peg Leg Lapie. He meets an array of characters, including the amazing Félice, who looked after the old man and may be his murderer. Sachs effectively and realistically combines city and village with his multitude of accents and tones. He and Simenon keep listeners puzzled until the last minute.The only thing better than reading Simenon is hearing him read by Andrew Sachs.
