Journal Entry 1 by wingTanamowing from Hinckley, Leicestershire United Kingdom on Tuesday, November 2, 2021
One rainy night, a canal worker stumbles across the strangled body of Mary Lampson in a stable near lock 14. The dead woman's husband seems unmoved by her death and is curt and unhelpful when Maigret interviews him aboard his yacht. But gradually Maigret is able to piece together their story - a sordid tale of whisky fuelled orgies and nomadic life on the canals. Can the answer to this crime be found aboard the yacht? Or is the murderer among the bargees, carters and lock-keepers who work the canal?

A very atmospheric tale. There's no detective like Maigret. He just seems to watch people and is almost psychic in the way he comes to his conclusions and he is so dogged in his pursuit of the truth, coping with the weather, a long muddy cycle ride and poor food and accommodation.
