As usual for upfield, good.

Narration: excellent in every way.

Story: interesting. I especially like author’s respect for aboriginal justice. It is also interesting to learn of different rates with which different aboriginal communities assimilated into white culture.

Love it

This book doesn’t have the focus on Bony’s racial makeup that other books have had. The mystery is good and the story moves at a good pace. The narration is wonderful.
