When a well-liked nightclub owner turns up dead in a cemetery, Inspector Maigret must track down the killer—despite a lack of suspects.
During a quiet spell in June, Maigret is called to investigate the disappearance of a reputable businessman, a nightclub owner with properties in Montmarte and on the Champs-elysees. Things take a dark turn when the man's body is discovered near the famous Pere Lachaise cemetery. There's no trace of the man having any enemies, and Maigret struggles to find any clues to the perpetrator—and loses his temper when his own reputation is threatened by the case.
Under the heat of the Paris summer sun, in Maigret's Anger, the inspector must find the connections he'll need to catch a killer and preserve his good name.
