Author(s): Arthur Upfield
When Bonaparte sets out to investigate two bizarre murders near the dusty little outback town of Carie, all the odds are against him. The crimes were committed a year before, the scent cold, and any clues that may have survived have been confused by a ham-fisted city policeman. As Bony follows the trail he is first threatened and then attacked by the mysterious murderer. It's a case that will tax his ingenuity to the limit... if he lives to see it through.
'Excellent set up for a story, good cast of characters, perplexing confusion of suspects, and perceptive unravelling of tangled threads.' - Kirkus Review
