Editorial Reviews

The 26th installment of Arthur Upfield’s classic series featuring the shrewd half-Aborigine detective follows Bony, posing as a station manager on a fishing vacation, in his pursuit of former respected theology student turned unrepentant rapist Marvin Rhudder.
Peter Hosking’s lush delivery brings the idyllic southwestern Australian coast to life, and he shows the ability to nimbly shift tones as Upfield builds to his tension-filled climax as the wizened and cunning Bony, with the help of local Aboriginals, stops at nothing to get his man.

Publisher's Summary

By a lonely roadside in the south-west corner of Western Australia, old-timer Karl Mueller is roused from his drink-sodden sleep by approaching footsteps and the sound of whistling. What he sees on waking (or he thinks he sees) is enough to make him stiffen with fear, and more than enought to worry the police into calling for Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte.

Great Australian Yarn

Where does Bony and the White Savage rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I loved it. I loved the character of the country and the people. As I didn't know the story the plot twist at the end was good. The work needs to be listened to as true to the location and times and the style of the writer. I did that and loved the my first encounter with an Australian classic.

What did you like best about this story?

Rural Western Australia, the character Bony and the story.

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

He is an excellent narrator. Five star.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

I have bought more of this authors work and will watch for Peter Hosking’s narration and buy again.

An interesting angle for Bony to solve

This story is quite a different angle that Upfield has taken - it is worthy of its title. I never fail to enjoy stories about Bony's special policing.
