"In a provincial French apartment block, Monsieur Hire endures a solitary life of dulling work as a tailor and vitriolic scorn from his neighbors. Hire's only solace is an occasional night out bowling and the voyeuristic admiration of his neighbor. ... When police discover the nude body of another young woman in a nearby vacant lot, Hire becomes the prime suspect in a murder investigation"--Container.
