Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte travels to Victoria, where two young women have disappeared while hiking in the Grampians. Not long after the search for the girls is called off, a local detective is found shot dead.

Bony visits the hotel the women were last seen at, and meets the hotel's unsavoury proprietor. The resulting encounter propels Bony into an investigation which almosts costs him his life.

About the Author

Upfield wrote twenty-nine Bony mystery stories between 1929 and 1962, as well as several other books including mysteries, romances, and an autobiography.

Arthur W. Upfield was born in England, but moved to Australia and adopted it as his homeland. He travelled throughout the country and tried his hand at many trades, including boundary rider and station hand. His travels lent him a weath of first hand experiences that make his books fascinating and believable. He captures the majesty of Australia, especially the outback country, and its people.

I get the impression that this story has been censored.

Comments about The Mountains Have A Secret (MP3):

I listened to this Audio CD twice in a few days. I am worried that someone has been 'at it' to remove all contentious references, such as to race. It is a fairly early book in Upfield's Bony series, but I do not want them to be 'sanitised'. Also, Bony makes more mistakes in this book than in any other that I have read, and I have read most of them. Maybe Upfield had production pressures. I enjoyed it, but with a few reservations.
This version is almost 'politically correct' for it's times.

    Comments about The Mountains Have A Secret (MP3):

    I have a print disability and like an audio book that keeps my attention. Having done part of a professional writing course, I apreciate the quality of the writing, the incite into some of the quirks of human nature and just enough tension to hold my interest.
