Sands of Windee: An Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte Mystery, Book 2 | [Arthur W. Upfield]

Sands of Windee: An Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte Mystery, Book 2

The police never notice the small detail in the background of a police photograph of an abandoned car. A detail that tells Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte plainly that the mysterious disappearance of Luke Marks near Windee Station is anything but accidental. Why had Luke Marks driven specially out to Windee? Had he been murdered or had he, as the local police believed, wandered away from his car and been overwhelmed in a dust-storm? Bony feels the answers lie somewhere in the sands of Windee.

    "Again, a masterpiece"

    Another beautifully written and masterfully narrated novel of a time long ago when men were good and wanted to be good and how they stayed good when other men were bad.

    Story
    "Boney is more than a simple half caste bush bum."
    What made the experience of listening to Sands of Windee the most enjoyable?

    The depiction of Australia in the 30's has a solid real feel. The reader provides a genuine Australian feel in a completely understandable pronunciation. The characters, action and situations easily provide you in a warm authintic feeling mystery.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte. While Boney was obviously full of himself he never took that to seriously.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Hosking’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No unfortunately I haven't but see it as an obvious plus and an asset to any book.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely out of the ordinary. When everything runs together or seems similar in the mystery genre these and McGinnis's books are a treat.

    "Brilliant"

    Excellent early part of the Boney series. Wonderfully evocative of the age, and if you can delay looking things up until AFTER you've heard the book, a fascinating real-life parallel in Australian crime.
