Eugene Lapole is a retired English teacher who taught creative writing and drama for thirty years, writing plays for his students to produce. He's a devoted advocate of the plain and simple style of writing, interested in the matter of facts of history, and in all the sciences. While teaching, he worked for twenty years on an etymological dictionary (not published) and wrote poetry. After retiring he spent several years working on edited versions of Herodotus, Livy, and several other Classical Historians, with a particular interest in forensic analysis of their texts, in an effort to clear up many 'mysteries' and 'problems' posed by the imperative of their time (lying to please their patron, for one). For a more recreational pass time he started to write murder-mysteries, but with a twist. These were called in general The Unfortunate Cases of Inspector Maigret, (of which 30 plus have been written) because none of those cases could be solved in a traditional manner. In some cases the guilty party could not be brought to justice, for one reason or another and yet Maigret strives to find a satisfactory solution. All the stories are presented in pure dialogue with no external narrative. Thus they read like plays or film scripts.
