The rainy Breton port town of Concarneau provides a moody background to Le Chien jaune (Maigret and the Yellow Dog in English), Georges Simenon's tale of revenge featuring the stolid and unflappable Commissaire Maigret. True to form, the strengths of Simenon's novel are its atmospheric sense of place and its intricate plotting, leading from a mysterious middle-of-the-night shooting from the mail slot of an empty house back to an old story of drug smuggling and betrayal. Simenon's novel is definitely not a solve-it-yourself exercise for armchair detectives, though, as much essential information is revealed only in Maigret's dramatic monologue at the end of the story. Along the way, it's entertainment enough to sit back, soak in the atmosphere of a gloomy Breton autumn, get to know the characters in the murderous drama, and await Maigret's clever resolution of the case.
