Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte is called to the drought-stricken outback for this, his latest case.
At a desolate sheep station, two men have been savagely beaten to death, and it's Bony's job to make an arrest. This isn't an easy case, since clues are scarce in this sun-baked, sand-blown country, but Bony's understanding of the bush and the people who live there – both black and white – leads him inexorably to the killer.
Two men have been beaten to death in the drought-stricken Australian outback, and it's up to Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte to find the murderer and the motive. But by the time he arrives it's been six months since the men died, and Bony (as his friends call him) must search doggedly among the sunbaked landscape to find clues. Despite his perfect track record, this might be his toughest case yet. Arthur Upfield's vivid writing gives the outback the presence of another character, while the talented Peter Hosking’s gruff yet gentle voice makes the story a pleasure to hear.
