'The father of contemporary European detective fiction' Ann Cleeves 'Florentin pulled one of those faces which had once amused his classmates so much and disarmed the teachers . . . Maigret didn't dare to ask why he had come to see him. He studied him, struggling to believe that so many years had passed . . . He was so used to acting the fool that his face automatically assumed comical expressions. But his face was still greyish, his eyes anxious.'

'The father of contemporary European detective fiction' Ann Cleeves 'People who've been here a long time have been talking about him. This morning, when I was having my coffee and croissants, it was all they were talking about. The old folks, even the middle-aged people, remember him and can't understand how he could have become a tramp. Apparently he was a good-looking man, tall and strong, who had a good profession and made a very decent living. And yet he vanished overnight without saying a word to anyone.' The death of a homeless man in a condemned building in Les Halles leads Maigret on the trail of the vagrant's mysterious past, and an event that happened years ago in the close-knit community of Montmartre.
