Winds of Evil (Inspector Bonaparte Mysteries)

by Arthur W. Upfield

When Bonaparte sets out to investigate two bizarre murders near the dusty little outback town of Carie, all the odds are against him. The crimes were committed a year before, the scent cold, and any clues that may have survived have been confused by a ham-fisted city policeman. As Bony follows the trail he is first threatened and then attacked by the mysterious murderer. It’s a case that will tax his ingenuity to the limit… if he lives to see it through.

Excellent set up for a story, good cast of characters, perplexing confusion of suspects, and perceptive unravelling of tangled threads. – Kirkus Review
