Audible Editor Reviews

In Arthur Upfield’s page-turning Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte mystery, originally published in 1940, the sinister Rex McPherson, a biracial Aboriginal pilot hell-bent on establishing his own empire, quite literally drops a bomb on an unsuspecting Queensland police officer and in the process nearly takes the life of Bony, our embattled hero who purses the bushranger on a perilous quest through the land of Burning Water.
Peter Hosking’s robust Australian lilt and lively performance elevates this quintessentially Australian tale that is as much thrilling mystery as it is an interesting snapshot of racial relations at the time in the sun-scorched Outback.

A Page Turner, Upfield at his best

The combination of a great and riveting storyline with a tremendous performance by Peter Hosking...incredible. Don't start this book if you think you will listen yourself to sleep, you'll be on the edge of your bed once the momentum of the tale takes you over. Really wonderful.
