A dark night, missing diamonds, a shot in the dark and some very suspicious characters add up to a chilling mystery for the redoubtable Inspector Maigret. This time, the Inspector is called to investigate the mysterious murder of a diamond merchant. It all starts with a stolen car and it proceeds forward as a strangely flirtatious woman and her grim husband become the prime suspects. But everyone in this little crossroads town seems to have something to hide. And nobody is really who they claim to be. But which ones are guilty? Where are the hidden gems? How many people are in on it? Who shot the diamond merchant’s wife? And why was there cocaine in a car's spare tire? All the threads are deftly woven together by the relentless logic of Inspector Maigret.

Le diamantaire hollandais, Goldberg, est retrouvé assassiné dans la voiture de l'agent d'assurances Michonnet, elle-même dissimulée dans le garage de ses voisins danois Carl Andersen et sa sœur Else Andersen, habitants du carrefour d'Avrainville. Le commissaire Maigret, qui enquête sur le vol de la voiture de l'agent d'assurances, met les maisons du carrefour sous surveillance. Malgré cela, la femme du diamantaire est également assassinée. Carl Andersen est également grièvement blessé par le tueur, puis Else est victime d'une tentative d'empoisonnement.
