Maigret of the Month: December, 2010


An anoymous phone call send M to Marina's in the Rue Pigalle, where he finds Lucien, the proprieter, along with Christiani, who he'd arrested ten years earlier, and who had knocked out two of M's teeth at the time, René Lecoeur, known as the Accountant, who was Christiani's recruit, and Fred, who'd been Christiani's accomplice. Marina was there too, and Julie, the Breton cleaning girl. A mirror had been broken with a bullet. Across the street, in a bar kept by an Auvergnat, M saw the Niçois and Pepito. The call had said to find out about Martino, from Antibes, whose brother had just been sent to Guiana. M collected guns from Fred and Christiani, but Lecoeur didn't have one. M knew that the men across the street thought Chrisitiani had turned in Martino's brother. But where was the body? Finally M realized that a moving van had made a brief stop. He called Lucas to stop the van, and he found Martino's body in a trunk sent by a 3rd floor tenant. Lucas went up to check the tenant, and he was found tied up. Martino had come in to cause trouble. Christiani had perhaps tried to shoot, but had hit the mirror. Lecoeur shot him, and then they took the body up the the 3rd floor and arranged for the van. Lecouer's gun was eventually found on the roof.
