Maître Hauchecorne sees a piece of string on the ground in the town of Goderville. Frugal like a "true Norman", he picks it up. Soon afterwards, he is accused of taking a lost pocketbook by someone who saw him picking up the string. To his great distress, no one believes his (true) story.
Cindy Hardin Killavey delivers a steady, understated performance in this richly described tale of guilt, innocence, and trial by public opinion.

Great Story, troublesome narration
I had never read any Guy de Maupassant, and I enjoyed this story. This is a pretty good short story with an interesting idea and characterization but the narration was a bit high pitched. I had to equalize to reduce the high frequencies which were a bit grating. Not worth a credit, but worth the one buck cash price.
