About This Item

New York: Harvest / HBJ. Good. 1979. Mass Market Paperback. 0156551225 . Spine slightly creased, a bit slanted, covers a bit creased and bowed out, corners bumped including some pages, book has a gentle curver to it. Text is clean and unmarked.

"This is a very special case in Maigret's experince, in which he invests his heart as much as his ingenuity. A nice old lady, meticulously groomed and showing no signs of derangement, timidly tries to see the famous detective and finally accosts him in the street. She is frightened: someone invades her apartment during her absences. Nothing is missing. But, says she, there are minute changes in the positions of objects, which to her prove the presence of an intruder. Maigret's subordinates shrug her off as a lunatic, and she becomes known at Police Headquarters as Maigret's Madwoman. But Maigret is touched by the look in her eyes and promises to go and see her. Someone else, however, gets there ahead of him.
Translator: Eileen Ellenbogen.; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall .
