Maigret receives an anonymous note announcing that a crime will be committed during first mass at the rural church in his provincial home town. Unable to resist the temptation, the detective attends the service and finds that the countess whom his late father worked for as bailiff has died from a heart attack. When he discovers that a bogus news article falsely announcing her son's suicide in her prayerbook, Maigret correctly assumes that foul play was involved. Written by
