    1. Away for the bush, Bony takes on a case at Wideview Chalet, a luxury resort in Victoria. It involves a German who deserted the fatherland before its capitulation during WW2, and a mysterious size 10 boot print. This book remained the only Bony story I couldn't locate for over a year but my partner finally turned it up in a country town in NSW. Like most Bony stories it makes for compelling reading. Bony was, and remains, Australia's greatest fictional detective.


    2. I'm a fan of the entire Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte series. The sense of place and the outback characters are unique and wonderful.


    3. If I hadn't been put off by the title, this true treat wouldn't have sat unread on my shelf for something like 30 years. It's hard to decide which is better, the environment of Upfield's beloved Australia or his half-aborigine Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte. Bony has the unfettered mind of his mother's culture and the education of his father's, and it is his constant war to keep them in balance. My favorite books of the series are when Bony's intuition and tracking skills are applied to [...]


    4. Upfield's novels are light, easily consumed & quintissentially Australian.This one has Boney on "holidays" - actually he is shadowing a post war spy & then the spy ups and is murdered! The clues are all there and relatively easy to guess, altho as a good detective writer, there is a nice little twist and sting.This is ideal easy reading between denser books (as I did), or as summer beach reading.


    5. A little atypical for Upfield and Bonaparte. Takes place in the aftermath of world war 2 and writing style is a little off as the tale involves fleeing Germans and seems as if Upfield is trying to write an adventure yarn instead of his usual mystery. Bonny's refined personality and vanity are missing also. By the latter half of the novel it does settle down into a good mystery, with the stories locale being Melbourne and not the usual Outback setting.


    6. Bony does espionage!It's 1945, and having done a bit of work for the intelligence services during the war, Bony is contacted by a senior intelligence officer to quietly investigate a German-American who is believed to be a senior German Staff officer in disguise and in possession of top secret documents. When everyone's plans go awry, Bony is determined to see things through.


    7. This is the first book in this series to really disappoint us. It does not even seem to be written by the same author as the rest, and the usual warm and charming personality has not been attributed to the character of Boney this time either. Very strange! We stopped reading it about halfway through, baffled and letdown.


    8. Bony solves another interesting case, this time involving spies and murder. The aftermath of WW II may continue to feature in this series, which is newly released on audio with an unexpected cultural disclaimer.


    9. Very good mystery in the excellent series involving the Australian half-caste detective Napoleon "Boney" Bonaparte. If you like good mysteries, you should try and find some of theseey are all excellent.


    10. What a delight to be alerted by to the Australian half-caste detective, Napoleon Bonapart, and this mid-forties Victoria/Gippsland-based novel. A real sense of Aussie non-metropolitan life. Will read many, many, more.




    11. Very difficult to get into. Set in and around Melbourne, not your usual Australian bush setting. I couldn't finish it, very dissapointing
