An anonymous note to the police reports that a body has been burned in the furnace of a bookbinder on the Rue de Turenne. Preliminary investigations turn up suspicious details—and two human teeth of a man who’d been alive not long before. Meanwhile, Madame Maigret has had a strange experience while waiting for her dentist appointment. A woman she had often met on the bench while waiting suddenly leaves her young child in Madame Maigret’s care and disappears for over an hour, returning to take the child and vanishing without explanation. When Maigret’s investigation is blown wide open, it seems the two incidents might be related in ways no one could have predicted.

“One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . .

He makes me think of Chekhov.” —William Faulkner “The greatest of all, the most genuine novelist we have had in literature.” — André Gide “A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness.” —The Independent (London) “Superb . . . the most addictive of writers . . . a unique teller of tales.” —The Observer (London) “Compelling, remorseless, brilliant.” —John Gray “A truly wonderful writer . . . marvellously readable—lucid, simple, absolutely in tune with the work he creates.” —Muriel Spark “A novelist who entered his fictional world as if he were a part of it.” —Peter Ackroyd “Extraordinary masterpieces of the twentieth century.” —John Banville
