FROM THE PUBLISHER - Swift action and brutal violence mark the beginning of Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte's this episode of adventure in the Australian bush country. Crouched under the shade of some cabbage trees, bony looked down the road that led into the Land of Burning Water and saw the tragedy unfold in front of his very eyes. He first noticed the car carrying Police Sergeant Errey trailing a white cloud of dust across the desert. He watched the silver-gray monoplane swoop down over the automobile. Frozen with horror, he saw the bomb explode and a sheet of flame devour the car. Yet, seeing so much, Bony still understood very little until he arrived at the lonely homestead of Mr. Donald McPherson. In record time Bony extricated the identity of the killer pilot from a reluctant informer and began his dangerous chase into the wilds of the unfriendly aborigine country. Frankly and excitingly melodramatic, this Upfield mystery combines fast action with psychological overtones and brilliant local color. Originally published in Australia in 1940 as BUSHRANGER OF THE SKIES. Upfield's novels were held in high regard by some fellow writers. In 1987, H.R.F. Keating included The Sands of Windee (1931) in his list of the 100 best crime and mystery books ever published. J.B. Priestley wrote of Upfield: ‘If you like detective stories that are something more than puzzles, that have solid characters and backgrounds, that avoid familiar patterns of crime and detection, then Mr Upfield is your man.’ Others have found Upfield's prose stilted. Much of the appeal of Arthur Upfield's stories lies in the depiction of outback Australian life in the 1930s through into the 1950s.
