Summary

Maigret is called to the home of professional gambler Felix Nahour, who has been found shot dead by his chambermaid. Maigret is shocked to recognise a photo of the man's wife, who becomes the main suspect. All signs point to her guilt, but Maigret suspects there might be more to this complicated affair.

This novel has been published in a previous translation as Maigret on the Defensive.

Like the wine, the stories are getting better with time

Great story - among the best, great performance by Mr. Armstrong - as usually, but an unsatisfying finish.
