Inspector Maigret returns to his boyhood home, Saint-Fiacre, where an unsigned note warns that a crime will be committed in the church on All Souls' Day. During the services, the Countess de Fiacre dies of an apparent heart attack but Maigret suspects foul play. ``Baldick's translation is rather elliptical,'' PW said, ``but Inspector Maigret makes his presence felt''; the final twist is ``stunning.''
