This novel presents the Chief Inspector with a complicated challenge: “Rarely, in a single day, had he gathered as many details in a case….” Nevertheless, driven in particular to avenge the brutal attempt to slay Inspector LognonMaigret wades through the seedy morass of the art world to answer questions like: what did Lognon mean when he murmured the single word “Ghost” while lying wounded on the sidewalk? What about the bedroom with obscene drawings and sexual symbols on the walls? Did a lunatic create them?
