    42 WORD REVIEW This mystery doesn t take much solving, but neither did many of Arthur Conan Doyle s As with Sherlock Holmes, it is the character of half caste Aboriginal detective Napoleon Bonaparte that bewitches the reader, plus in this case Upfield s vivid descriptions of outback Australia.

    I love this series and this protagonist Of the Napoleon Boneparte books, this is my favorite I love the setting as well, and the element of the supernatural.

    At one time I read a lot of Upfield and was hoping to enjoy this one However, I found the book very slow and Boney no longer as appealing a character as before Maybe I have outgrown this series.
