All that was still unclear, for sure. Ernest Malik had been right when he had looked at Maigret with a smile that was a mixture of sarcasm and contempt. This wasn't a case for him.

Peacefully tending his garden in the countryside, Maigret is cajoled out of retirement by a case involving an old classmate and a rich family with skeletons in their cupboard - and finds himself confronted by lies, snobbery and malice. 'His artistry is supreme.' John Banville

Maigret Goes to School Book Description:

'His artistry is supreme' John Banville 'What was he doing there? A hundred times, in the middle of an investigation, he'd had the same feeling of helplessness or, rather, futility. He would find himself abruptly plunged into the lives of people he had never met before, and his job was to discover their most intimate secrets. This time, as it happened, it wasn't even his job. He was the one who had chosen to come, because a teacher had waited for him for hours in the Purgatory at the Police Judiciaire.' When a school teacher from a small coastal town near La Rochelle asks Maigret to help prove he is innocent of murder, the Inspector returns with him to his insular community and finds the residents closing ranks to conceal the truth.
