KIRKUS REVIEW

Two of the five cases collected in this new dossier on Maigret are translated by Anthony Boucher, the other three by Lawrence G. Blochman and all revolve around the Inspector's patience and persistence. His Christmas is taken up with neighbors across the street; a trip to the country brings him to a strange crime; he apprehends Polish throat slitters; he unmasks a provincial murderer; a man who spends a whole day in a Paris cafe leads him to a forthright killer -- and a puzzle. Expert.
