Publisher's Summary

In early 1933, Rowland Sinclair and his companions are ensconced in the superlative luxury of The Hydro Majestic; trouble seems very distant indeed...until Harry Simpson vanishes. Croquet and pre-dinner cocktails are abandoned as Rowland begins the hunt. Stockmen, gangsters and a belligerent writer all gather to the fray, as the investigation becomes embroiled with a much darker conspiracy.

Off to the High Country this time.

Cattle Duffing and the great alarms still, of the perceived threat of Communism in Australia during the 1930's. Oh and the search for Bushrangers' loot.
A quick look at the racism prevalent at the time, sexual inequality and chauvinism and..

The last lines sure brought a chuckle. A grand exit. However a person needs to know a little about Aussie books and awards to get the joke.
If you do not know much about Australia it may help to read up on some of the Artists of the 30's in Australia too. Norman Lindsay. These are like the decorations on the iced cake.

This series is curious. On one hand we find the almost serial adventures of our hero, Rolly, and his friends and family and on the other hand, an introduction to the great events of the time in NSW. There is also the look at attitudes over a wide spectrum of society.. The more I listen the more I love this series.

If you only check the 'Rowland Sinclair Mysteries' you will miss out on another book in the series, 'A Dangerous Language' so do an Audible Search for Sulari Gentill to locate it. Its worth the listen. A prequil to the series I have only read about, Sulari Gentill gave free to her reading fans.
