Each party to a marriage suspects the other of mental aberration that may be homicidal- the problem is one of preventing rather than solving a crime, and its nature is such that Maigret, that superb intuitive psychologist, is forced to study the terms and techniques of clinical psychology. The plot is firm and fascinating- the characters are real and ambivalent- the telling is direct and cogent.MAIGRET AND THE RELUCTANT WITNESSES deals with a murder during an obviously faked burglary attempt and a procedural duel between the veteran policeman and a bright, brash young juge dinstruction. The case is an interesting one, curiously French in its motivation, and the element of formal puzzle-detection is stronger than usual in Simenons work, and very skillfully handled.
