A cat ... a ping-pong ball ... a drunken gardener ... With these slight clues to go on Detective-Inspector Bonaparte investigates the mysterious death of famous author, Mervyn Blake, who dies an agonizing death late one night in his writing room. But how did he die? No one knows. No one that is until Bony's acute observation of human nature uncovers the murderer - and the method used to kill Blake. One of the few Bonaparte mysteries not set in the Outback, An Author Bites the Dust reveals the author as his best and most ingenious.More
The backdrop for this inspector Bony mystery is an Australian writer's convention. Mervyn Blake is the host, one of the most respected writers who talks well about nothing. At night, alone in his writing room, Blake is murdered. With few clues to go on, the mystery seems unsolvable, but not to the deductive methods of Inspector Bonaparte Bony. Peter Hosking performs this audio mystery, emphasizing the pompousness of the writing world that Arthur Upfield was poking fun at, as well as the ingenious methods of his protagonist.
