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.

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.
i picked this one because it was referred to in another of the books as his only failure. It turned out to be one of the most interest in g I'Ve listened to so far!
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.
