Publisher's Summary

A stand-alone novel from the author of the classic Australian Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte mystery series.

Harry Tremayne, a policeman, goes to an isolated valley in the remote Murchison region of Western Australia to find his brother - who vanished a month earlier while investigating the murder of a police detective. Do the gold smugglers at Breakaway House hold the answers to the mystery?

First published as a serial in the Perth Daily News in 1932, the real setting for Breakaway House is Mt Magnet, about 580km north of Perth, deep in gold country.

Not one of my favourite Upfield books.

There has been a couple of Upfield books without Bony . This didn’t get to me at all. I had three attempts to finish and was glad to get there in the end. Think I will exchange it for a book I WANT to read.
