About the book

It was Detective Lognon's invalid wife on the phone... Lognon had been missing for two days. Two suave looking men armed with pistols had searched her Montmartre flat, brazenly ignoring her outraged protests. When Lognon reappeared he told Maigret the strange story of how he had seen a body pushed from a car onto the pavement, only to vanish minutes later. Anxious for personal recognition, Lognon had tried to tackle the case alone... and almost died to regret it.

Why are Tony Cicero and Charlie Cinaglia, two dangerous Sicilian gangsters well know to the FBI, in Paris? Is the disappearance of a third gangster, Mascarelli or 'Sloppy Joe', connected with their arrival? Whose body was thrown from the car? Luigi, proprietor of the Manhattan Bar, and another restaurant owner, Pozzo, warn Maigret not to look for the answers. These men are professionals - professional killers. Undaunted, Maigret continues his investigations and finds himself entangled in a web of crime that reaches from Missouri to Montmartre.
