From the Back Cover:

"Maigret . . . ranks with Holmes and Poirot in the pantheon of fictional detective immortals." -- People

Montmartre night club owner Emile Boulay is found strangled outside Pere Lachaise cemetery, and Maigret immediately rules out the possibility of professional murder--underworld killers do not strangle their victims nor do they transport them from one spot to another. Yet Boulay appears to have had no enemies. Maigret is irritated by the obfuscation of the case (and his doctor's orders to cut down on trips to the local brasserie), but when his own spotless reputation is called into question, the Chief Inspector does, indeed, lose his temper.

"Simenon . . . is in a class by himself." -- The New Yorker
