An Inspector Bonaparte Mystery featuring Bony, the first Aboriginal detective. Why was King Henry, an aboriginal from Western Australia, killed in New South Wales? What was the feud that led to murder after nineteen long years had passed? Who was the woman who saw the murder and kept silent? This first story of Inspector Bonaparte takes him to the Darling River bush country where he encounters those problems he understands so well - mixed blood and divided loyalties. 'Rampageous fisticuffs, rough scenery and rougher, dust-covered sheepmen and wanderers, dignified aboriginals, and so much interest and local colour.' - Books and Bookmen

Arthur Upfield wrote twenty-nine Bony mystery stories between 1929 and 1962, as well as several other books including mysteries, romances, and an autobiography. Arthur W. Upfield was born in England, but moved to Australia and adopted it as his homeland. He traveled throughout the country and tried his hand at many trades, including boundary rider and station hand. His travels lent him a wealth of first-hand experiences that make his books fascinating and believable. He captures the majesty of Australia, especially the outback country, and its people.
