About the Author:

For Bolinda Audio he has also narrated Arthur Upfield's Venom House, Winds of Evil, and Mr Jelly's Business.

From AudioFile:

The delightfully eccentric Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte pretends to be a South African author to investigate the murder of a prominent Australian writer. There are minimal clues, a situation that makes the challenge he faces that much greater. Narrator Peter Hosking cheerfully presents humor and gravity in a variety of Australia's accents in a most appealing conversational style. A cat called Mr. Pickwick assists Napoleon with examining ping-pong balls filled with coffin dust. As the tragic causes of the murder are revealed, 1930s-1950s Australia and its attitudes towards Aborigines and women are revealed. This fascinating entry is part of Bolinda's Napoleon Bonaparte series. S.G.B. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
