Boney is more than a simple half caste bush bum.

What made the experience of listening to Sands of Windee the most enjoyable?

The depiction of Australia in the 30's has a solid real feel. The reader provides a genuine Australian feel in a completely understandable pronunciation. The characters, action and situations easily provide you in a warm authintic feeling mystery.

What did you like best about this story?

Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte. While Boney was obviously full of himself he never took that to seriously.

Have you listened to any of Peter Hosking’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No unfortunately I haven't but see it as an obvious plus and an asset to any book.

Any additional comments?

Definitely out of the ordinary. When everything runs together or seems similar in the mystery genre these and McGinnis's books are a treat.

Should be on the list of great detective stories

Upfield has created a memorable detective in Bony. This particular story ranks up there with the greats, especially since Bony applies Sherlockian logic but with a twist. Australian outback seems exotic and unknowable. Some of the cultural references are disturbing to the modern reader and should be. But if you can look past this and just enjoy the story, you will be entertained. Excellent narration.

Again, a masterpiece

Another beautifully written and masterfully narrated novel of a time long ago when men were good and wanted to be good and how they stayed good when other men were bad.

I love this series!

Great story with sympathetic characters. Peter Hosking is terrific. Bony always finds a way to solve the crime but leave people's dignity intact.
