The original work was the 94th in Simenon’s order of publication, and this work is the 66th in Penguin’s modern series of translations. 
Here’s the enticement: a young man on a bus steals Maigret’s wallet, but his brand-new shoes are so painful he is incapable of running after the thief. The next day, the wallet arrives in the mail and the pickpocket telephones to demand a face-to-face private meeting away from the office. The intrigued Chief Inspector agrees, and the mysterious man leads him to an apartment. There, a nauseating odor and carrion flies surround a woman’s body….
