Summary

Maigret receives an anonymous phone call concerning the brutal murder of a woman and young child. 

The tip off concerns the woman's nephew, a mild-mannered man by the name of Gaston Meurant. 

Maigret remains unconvinced of the man's guilt and at his trial exposes some shocking truths about Meurant's private life that may prove his innocence.

Rather slow

Gareth Armstrong's reading of the story is excellent but unfortunately I felt the story was not one of Simenon's stronger ones. It seemed rather slow and the development of characters thin.
