Publisher's Summary

Myra Thomas, accused of murdering her philandering husband, is found not guilty by a sympathetic jury. But while travelling from Adelaide to Perth on the Transcontinental Railway express, she mysteriously disappears during the overnight journey across the vast, featureless desert.
Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte takes the case and sets off to search for her over the flat wasteland of the Nullabor Plain. At first it seems that the harsh environment will give him no clues, but Bony soon finds more than he bargained for? landing himself in a bigger mystery, and a fight for survival...

More Upfield, please!

Arthur Upfield's books are always excellent, especially when read by Peter Hosking. He's the very best narrator! Man of Two Tribes is no exception to this - another fun one!

Would love to see more of Arthur Upfield's books available on Audible!

A great read from a great writer

Arthur Upfield paints brilliant word pictures of a different place and a different time - if anything makes me want to travel to Australia as see the place, these books do.
This is one of his later books - television and helicopters get a mention, but as in all of his books, the main characters are the landscape and DI Napoleon Bonaparte

As always, these Bolinda audio books are prefaced by a disclaimer about the depiction of native australians in the narrative, but I suspect Upfield had a deal of respect for them, they rarely occupy the role of villain and he obviously had a great understanding of their skills and abilties

The action is set on the Nullarbor Plain, known in the common parlance as 'the great bugger all' and without going in to masses of description of what is a vast emptiness, he manages to convey the size of the area that is so important to the story

One suggestion for new readers - if you haven't come across Upfield's Boney novels before, choose an earlier one to this, the plot is not outrageous, just more unlikely than most murder mystery plots.....

Feel like an Australian

These are great stories and Can identify with so many of the experiences and places havering lived and visited so many of the places in the books.
Have to mention the narrator whom I believe to be the very best narrator I have ever had the pleasure to listen to. Please do more?
