Arthur Upfield paints brilliant word pictures of a different place and a different time - if anything makes me want to travel to Australia as see the place, these books do.
This is one of his later books - television and helicopters get a mention, but as in all of his books, the main characters are the landscape and DI Napoleon Bonaparte
As always, these Bolinda audio books are prefaced by a disclaimer about the depiction of native australians in the narrative, but I suspect Upfield had a deal of respect for them, they rarely occupy the role of villain and he obviously had a great understanding of their skills and abilties
The action is set on the Nullarbor Plain, known in the common parlance as 'the great bugger all' and without going in to masses of description of what is a vast emptiness, he manages to convey the size of the area that is so important to the story
One suggestion for new readers - if you haven't come across Upfield's Boney novels before, choose an earlier one to this, the plot is not outrageous, just more unlikely than most murder mystery plots.....
Love the bony stories... Wishing they would hurry up and read the earlier ones for me. G g g g
Arthur Upfield's books are always excellent, especially when read by Peter Hosking. He's the very best narrator! Man of Two Tribes is no exception to this - another fun one!
Would love to see more of Arthur Upfield's books available on Audible!
