Publisher's Summary

Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte leaves his familiar outback environment for Melbourne and a nearby mountain resort on special assignment for Military Intelligence.

Although out of his element among city people, Bony displays his characteristic skills to interpret some puzzling clues and catch a murderer - providing the ingredients for another fascinating Arthur Upfield mystery.

    "A Classic Mystery"

    Upfield's classic detective, Napoleon Bonaparte, belongs in the same league as Holmes, Marple, Poirot, and Dalgliesh. Please give us more Bony!

    "enjoyable aussie whodunnit"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    set in Australia post WW2 Bony, with his half aboriginal heritage, is unique in the detective arena.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bony - always so smooth


    Have you listened to any of Peter Hosking’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, many. He has an unusual style that suits these books, sounding slightly old-fashioned in his speech, but as the books are slightly old-fashioned, it works well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not in its unabridged version-too long!


    Any additional comments?

    Arthur Upfield is very precise in his descriptions, which can be wordy at times, but he gets away with it. His Outback mysteries, especially, have vivid portrayals of life and the desert country, for rich and poor, black and white. Even so, they are still a cracking good whodunnit.

    Story
    "One of the Best Mystery Series Ever"
    Would you listen to Devil's Steps again? Why?

    Yes. It is an excellent classic mystery story. The unique setting of Austrailia in the 1940's creates a delicious atmosphere. The atmosphere is authentic since Arthur Upfield wrote the book in 1946. Detective Napoleon Bonaparte is such a wonderful character. Half Abroigine


    What other book might you compare Devil's Steps to and why?

    Almost any Agatha Christie


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was the developement of the characters, not just one moment


    Any additional comments?

    Great read.
