Publisher's Summary

This is the 22nd instalment in Mr. Upfield’s detective series featuring the Australian Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte.  

Deep in Australia's outback, a woman has been murdered, her daughter vanished. Yorky, one of the locals and a crazy wanderer, is known to have been in the area, and his footprints have been identified near the body.   

When he too disappears, even the Aboriginal trackers are baffled. Bony's approach changes everything....

One of his good ones.

Narration: Wonderfully narrated. Australian accent is delightful.

Story: One of his good stories but not one of his best.

I enjoy listening to these

The performance by Peter Hoskins is excellent and the stories are interesting with some humor. The author includes a good bit of background material that makes them even more interesting to me. Best mysteries? No. A good, light book to listen to, yes. Very much so.

The publishers make the point that the attitudes toward women and aboriginals were typical of the period - those attitudes can be annoying. It doesn’t spoil the books and Upfield shows a degree of admiration for Aboriginals and includes strong women in many of his casts.

One of the best in the Boney Series

I love all the Boney books but this one is definitely a favourite. As with all the books in the series you have to take into account the time in which it wad written as it is certainly not a book that could ever be written today, but taking that into consideration it is an amazingly well written and well narrated book

Beautiful in every aspect

As all of The Bony books, they are written & read in a way that takes you right into the Australian outback, you can almost smell & feel the countryside & feel what the characters are feeling & see what they see.

This was another great tale.
