Maigret of the Month: September, 2009


An anonymous letter written on unique paper and warning that a murder will be committed, leads M quickly to the home of a famous maritime lawyer, Emile Parendon. But who wrote the letter and who will be the victim remain a mystery. Another letter arrives, chiding M for acting so quickly, and warning that M's actions will precipitate the murder. M. interviews Parendon, Mme Parendon, his wife, and his secretary, Antoinette Vague, and stations a man at the house when a third and more urgent letter is received. The following morning, the secretary is found at her desk with her throat cut. It becomes clear that the anonymous letters came from Parendon's son, Gus Parendon, and that the murderer could only have been Mme Parendon; supporting testimony of a witness in a nearby apartment leads to her arrest.
