Publisher's Summary

A classic Australian story from the Bolinda Classics range.
The aborigines, who knew how many eagles flew over their inland desert, must have known who put the dead white man into Lucifer's Couch. But no one in Hall's Creek, white or black, reported seeing the stranger - and there were no tracks around the meteor crater. Was the murder done by whites or blacks or by both in collusion? Bony listened to the ancient tribal legends and found truth nobody wanted to believe.


Audible Editor Reviews

Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte is called in again to deal with a murder, this time in remote Hall's Creek. No one, white or aboriginal, seems to know the truth, and Bonaparte must listen to the ancient legends to discover it for himself. In this classic of Australian mysteries, Peter Hosking's fresh, tough performance paints the remote, historical world of Arthur Upfield's The Will of the Tribe with absolute clarity. Listeners will delight in both the evocation of this stunning landscape and unique cultural moment, and be on the edge of their seats as they wait for the chilling conclusion.
