In the novel Murder on the Links, Maître Grosier is Jack Renauld's defence counsel. During the preliminary hearing, Jack generally ignores Grosier's advice and proceeds to answer the magistrate's questions in such a way as to incriminate himself. The most Grosier can do is to insert a protest to the magistrate that Jack has been under great nervous strain and he does not consider him answerable for what he says. The magistrate, Monsieur Hautet, however, ignores this protest.

Afterwards, Poirot tells Jack that had the hearing gone on as it did, Jack would soon have Maître Grosier's death from rage on his conscience.
