When a Paris musician witnesses an altercation that may have been a murder, the young Maigret becomes embroiled in his first case. The thirtieth book in the new Penguin Maigret series.

A musician walking home along the Rue Chaptal in the early hours of the morning sees a panic-stricken woman call for help from an upstairs window; moments later he hears a gun shot. He tries to go to her assistance, pushing past the man who opens the door upon his frantic knocking, but he finds himself roughly ejected from the premises. Undeterred, he heads for the nearest police station and urges Maigret to return with him and find out what has taken place.

With this look into the man he once was and how he became the insightful inspector we have some to know, Simenon offers new insights into the brilliance of Maigret.

A very solid crime novel, heavy on the human element, that says a great deal about society; how things are structured so that the sewage flows downhill. Maigret, a idealistic cop on his first case, has more than just a crime to figure out
