    Summary

    Even before the last arrests have been made, it is confirmed that the Commissaire d'Arnouville was shot dead on the Rue Montmartre whilst trying to negotiate. The news about the Inspector percolates more slowly through the Préfecture de Police, at the discretion of Monsieur Gisquet.

    The Inspector’s final missive was worrisome; there is a nod to expect the worst; when a cry goes up from the laundry-boats at the Pont-Neuf, no-one is entirely surprised.

    The Commissaire is publicly mourned, as befits a fallen hero. The Inspector is privately but sincerely regretted, disproving one of his own conjectures: he is missed.
