Publisher's Summary

A thrilling mystery and one of the incomparable Inspector Bonaparte's toughest cases.

Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte travels to Victoria, where two young women have disappeared while hiking in the Grampians. Not long after the search for the girls is called off, a local detective is found shot dead.

Bony visits the hotel the women were last seen at, and meets the hotel's unsavoury proprietor. The resulting encounter propels Bony into an investigation which almost costs him his life.

Please Note: Part of the appeal of Arthur Upfield's stories lies in their authentic portrayal of many aspects of outback Australian life in the 1930s and through into the 1950s. These audiobooks reflect and depict the attitudes and ways of speech of that era particularly with regard to Aborigines and to women. In reproducing this audiobook the publisher does not endorse the attitudes or opinions they express.
