A classic detective story set in the outback

A twisting plot that keeps you guessing until the end

One of many iconic Napoleon Bonaparte adventures from the incomparable Arthur Upfield

Murder is a serious business – but for once it had to take second place ...

In the little town of Mitford, New South Wales, five babies had been stolen – all were boys less than three months old, and all had apparently been neglected by their mothers.

The local Criminal Investigation Branch had given up, and on his arrival a cold trail faced Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte, the half-Aborigine detective who had never failed to finish a case.

About the Author

Arthur William Upfield (1 September 1890 – 13 February 1964) was an Australian writer, best known for his works of detective fiction featuring Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte ('Bony') of the Queensland Police Force, a half-caste Aborigine.

Born in England, Upfield moved to Australia in 1910 and fought with the Australian military during the First World War. Following his war service, he travelled extensively throughout Australia, obtaining a knowledge of Australian Aboriginal culture that would later be used extensively in his written works. In addition to his detective fiction, Upfield was also a member of the Australian Geological Society and was involved in numerous scientific expeditions. Upfield's works remained popular after his death, and in the 1970s were the basis for an Australian television series entitled "Boney".
