Library Journal Review

Detective Inspector Napoleon "Bony" Bonaparte is the hero of the vast majority of the prolific Upfield's 33 novels. The 1931 mystery The Sands of Windee is Bony's third adventure in the Australian outback. The half-caste investigator is able to show off his superior intellect and prefeminist sensitivity while exploring tribal culture and, of course, solving a difficult murder case. Bony is obviously Upfield's perfect Renaissance man, and he never misses a chance to prove it. The book may be a historical curiosity as it draws on the author's own experiences and knowledge of the bush, but it is often tedious despite Nigel Graham's devoted recitation. Recommended for larger mystery collections.-Joyce Kessel, Villa Maria Coll., Buffalo, N.Y. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
