Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte arrives in the little town of Mitford, New South Wales, to find that five babies have been abducted and a murder committed. The half-aborigine sleuth calls in policewoman Alice McGorr to help him, and one of the most important clues they find is a cave drawing depicting an aboriginal legend. Bony, as unorthodox and cunning as ever, reenacts the legend in order to solve the mystery.
Bony demonstrates his tracking ability in a urban environment.
As always Arthur upfields books take the lisener back in time
and to different locations from the most mystery & thriller novels
Storyline is very convoluted and shows little understanding of the psychology of characters that usually grace Upfield's novels. Of all his novels I would put this one at the bottom of the list.
Murder Must Wait is original, suspenseful and 100% classic Bony. I couldn't stop listening. The talented and well-suited narrating of Peter Hosking makes these audio books what they are and will have you coming back until you've listened to them all!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
The story is good, as Arthur Upfield's stories invariably are, but, this reader can kill a good story. Please find someone who would do justice to Upfield.
What three words best describe Peter Hosking’s voice?
Boring boring boring.
