By Georges Simenon

Sin dalla prima volta in cui Joseph Lambert ha visto l. a. faccia di Edmonde nel momento del piacere (con le narici contratte come quelle di una morta, e il labbro superiore rialzato a scoprire i denti in una smorfia di sofferenza che non somigliava consistent with niente a un sorriso), lei ha smesso di essere una efficiente, taciturna, un po’ stolida segretaria, ed è diventata los angeles sua complice.
Fra loro è nata un’intesa che non è né amore né passione, ma piuttosto l. a. condivisione di un gioco segreto. E quando, una sera, guidando a zig-zag con l. a. sinistra mentre tiene los angeles destra tra le cosce di lei, Lambert sente dietro di sé il claxon disperato di un pullman e lo vede poi schiantarsi contro un muro, non pensa neppure a fermarsi.
Si limita a gettare un’occhiata, nello specchietto retrovisore, all’immenso rogo che ha provocato. Poche ore dopo apprenderà che, di quei quarantasette bambini che tornavano dalle vacanze, una sola è sopravvissuta. Ma chi può sapere che è lui il colpevole? Colpevole di che cosa, oltretutto?

O di sua moglie, che according to through delle numerose scappatelle gli nega l’accesso al proprio letto? O degli amici con cui gioca a bridge l. a. sera al caffè?
Esseri mediocri, che lui disprezza. are available fondo disprezza l. a. sua stessa vita. Se proverà a sviare da sé i sospetti sarà solo in step with poter ritrovare, ancora una volta, Edmonde, in line with scoprire in lei quello che aveva cercato a tentoni according to tutta l. a. vita.

The H/C ratio requires that an appreciable fraction of the edge sites be occupied by methyl groups. Measurements of electron spin resonance indicate that many mesophase molecules are free radicals with at least one unoccupied edge ~ i t e .
