A key turned in a lock. A bolt shot back. A very clean cell with a very high ceiling. A man, who rose to his feet, while by his face he seemed uncertain what expression to adopt. “Well, Lenoir? ” The prisoner nearly smiled, but his features hardened as an idea flashed through his mind.

You needn’t play that game with me.
A young man in bathing-costume was chasing her. Both were convulsed with laughter. Others in the garden were watching the scene. One shouted out: “Now then! ” “At any rate till the wedding’s over,” cried another. The bride stopped, panting for breath, and Maigret at once recognized the lady who twice a week paid flying visits to the Avenue Niel accompanied by Monsieur Basso.

He soon reappeared, and in a short time had rejoined the party. He talked and laughed as heartily as ever, but Maigret couldn’t help thinking he looked preoccupied.
